The Storm Atlas that hit SD, WY, and MT was near and dear to our hearts. Our South Dakota ranch is in the North Central area and we ended up receiving 5-6 inches of rain/freezing rain but no snow thank gosh.
For those that were farther West of us and were dramatically affected please take a look at the Ranchers Relief Fund and apply for assistance. They have over $2 million that has been donated through many organizations, businesses, ranchers/farmers, individuals and roll over auctions. There will hopefully be assistance through the Farm Service Agency once the Farm Bill gets straightened out but that might be a year or more from now. We know that the Ranchers affected by this need the assistance as soon as possible.
THE DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 31, 2013!
Please spread the word about this, if someone does not have the internet they can call 877-708-4357.
Have a beautiful day!
