Rancher Relief Fund wrapping up disbursements

Posted: Updated:

The Rancher Relief Fund is set to disburse the last payments to assist livestock producers in the wake of last October’s winter storm, the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association said.

People from around the world donated $5.4 million to the Ranchers Relief Fund.

“The outpouring of support for those impacted by the devastating storm has far exceeded our expectations,” South Dakota Stockgrowers President Bob Fortune said. “We’re excited to be able to distribute meaningful contributions to more than 600 ranch families who suffered losses.”

Donations can be made until June 1 for the fund. For more information, visit the fund’s website.
