The re-mainder came from other dona-tions from inside and outside of South Dakota.“We’re so pleased Farm Bureaucan help in some small way withfinancial needs after the bliz-zard,” said Scott VanderWal,President of the South DakotaFarm Bureau, a farmer from Volga, S.D. “This will not replaceall of the lost livestock, but wehope it will begin mending thehurt and help get the ranch fam-ilies through the holiday seasonas they begin to make decisionsabout the future.”The fund will provide financialassistance for immediate needsfor ranch families, such as gro-ceries, medical bills, or utilitybills.
