State Stock Growers Ask Help For Dakota

Posted in

The Wyoming Stock Growers Association is urging its membership and Wyoming residents to give to those in the agriculture industry impacted by the blizzard of Oct. 4-7, also known as “Atlas.”

Executive Vice President Jim Magagna said: “The recent storm accompanied by freezing temperatures and high winds caused unprecedented devastation to many of our ranching neighbors in South Dakota.”

He said organization members have been told that losses of cattle have exceeded 20,000 head. Anyone interested in making in-kind donations of livestock to repopulate herds, are urged to contact the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association, The South Dakota Stockgrowers, or the South Dakota Sheep Growers.

The majority of cattle losses are found in South Dakota where a Rancher Relief Fund is now accepting donations. To donate to the Rancher Relief Fund visit, and search "Rancher Relief Fund" or click on this link --
