Donations Still Welcome To Help Ranchers Impacted by Winter Storm Atlas

  North Dakota Stockmen's Association continues support of ranchers affected by early October blizzard.

The North Dakota Stockmen's Association and the North Dakota Stockmen's Foundation are extending support to North and South Dakota livestock producers who were devastated by the winter storm that killed several thousand cattle last month.

The non-profit organizations donated $10,000 to the South Dakota Rancher Relief Fund, and set aside an additional $10,000 to establish the Stockmen's Aid for Atlas Disaster Relief Fund to provide relief to North Dakota ranchers who suffered catastrophic livestock losses in the blizzard.

Many cattle, sheep and horses were killed as a result of the impact of the storm, Oct. 4-5. Preliminary estimates are somewhere in the tens of thousands of animals in the Dakotas. Many surviving animals continue to get sick from secondary illnesses as a result of the storm, NDSA said.
