The Rancher Relief Fund is closing in on one-million dollars in aid for livestock producers who suffered tremendous losses in the October blizzard.

The fund started with the help of various local groups, and is now beginning the process of distributing financial aid.   The group is accepting applications for assistance.

SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray has this story on the effort to reach out to ranchers in need.

Those who want to donate to the relief fund can go to the Black Hills Area Community Foundation website here.

Assistance application forms are available online at www.RanchersRelief.org.  An application deadline of Dec. 31, 2013 has been set in order to assess the number of applications and the severity of the needs of those applicants.
