Again, we would like to say THANK YOU !!!

          We would also like to say Thank you to all the truckers that haul in and out of here at all times of the day and night – They are also a very important part of making this business work.

Ranchers Relief Fund

            The S.Dak Stockgrowers Assoc., the S.Dak Cattlemans Assoc., S.Dak Sheep Growers Assoc., Farmers Union and Farm Bureau  have joined together with the Black Hills Area Community Foundation to establish the Rancher Relief Fund to help producers who suffered losses in the blizzard.

            Checks can be made to Ranchers Relief Fund and mailed to:

BHACF/Ranchers Relief Fund

PO Box 231

Rapid City , SD 57709 .

            This auction and several other auctions will be holding fundraisers, rollover auctions, etc. to also help raise funds. Also, if you want to donate livestock to the fund there will be no expenses held out, and we will forward the funds on in your name.

            Probably one of the most important things everyone needs to do is contact and put lots of pressure on our congressional delegation along with all segments of our government to get federal assistance for reimbursement on livestock losses. These losses are so massive that fundraisers alone will not save the people that took these massive losses. Our government sends hundreds of billions of dollars all over the world to many different countries. It’s now time for them to take care of the people in this country who feed this country in their time of crisis.

We strongly urge everyone to get the word out!!!!
