MOBRIDGE, SD (KOLY) – Today at 2 p.m., the Mobridge Livestock Market will hold a Rollover Auction for the SD Rancher’s Relief Fund. After the devastating storm that has killed thousands of livestock, the local market is holding the auction to raise money to help ranchers who have been impacted by their loss of cattle. Casey Perman of the Mobridge Livestock Market states that “people in the market stick together in times of need to help each other out.”
To provide relief for producers affected by the blizzard, the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association and the South Dakota Sheep Growers Association have established the South Dakota Rancher Relief Fund.
The fund is administered by the Black Hills Area Community Foundation in cooperation with the founding livestock organizations. Find more details at www.sdcattlemen.org or contribute online at www.giveblackhills.org, and search for “Rancher’s Relief Fund.”

Checks made payable to “Ranchers Relief Fund” may also be mailed to the Black Hills Area Community Foundation, P.O. Box 231, Rapid City, SD 57709. A financial donation to the Ranchers Relief Fund will help with immediate expenses incurred such as carcass removal, fence repair and roundup/hauling of strays.
