Cattlemen Relief Fund Established

A week ago the lives of cattle producers was greatly impact by a severe winter storm that resulted in extreme cattle losses to producers in north west Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The storm producing rain followed by several inches of heavy snow and severe wind has caused catastrophic cattle losses to many producers in Sioux, Dawes and Sheridan counties.

Recovery efforts are underway in these counties but there have been no official count of losses, but we do know that the loss of head is devastating to many cattle producers.

If you would like to help producers in Nebraska, a contribution can be sent to the Cattlemen Relief Fund, PO Box 1125, Chadron NE 69337.
