Montana Ranchers Donate Cattle to SD



Bookmark and Share

Forty-five donated Montana cattle to serve as breeding stock have been sent to South Dakota ranchers who lost thousands of cattle in a freak blizzard in October.
    
The cattle shipped Friday.
    
Montana ranchers Rene Browns and Alisha Burcham decided they wanted to do something and began gathering cattle donations from Montana's Hi-Line area in northern Montana.
    
The organization Heifers for South Dakota accepted nominations for the donated cattle.
    
The group chose family ranches that had herds of about 160 head, but lost 50 to 60 percent of them in the storm.
    
South Dakota officials say the Oct. 4 blizzard dumped up to 4 feet of snow in the western part of the state, killing about 14,000 cattle, 1,257 sheep, 287 horses and 40 bison.
