After a catastrophic drought, North Dakota ranchers are now recovering from back-to-back blizzards. According to North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation President Dan Rorvig, a disaster relief fund has been launched to provide a helping hand. “The North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation has contributed $30,0000 and the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association has agreed to contribute $10,000,” said Rorvig. “We also hope this acts as seed money for others who want to participate.” Rorvig said this assistance won’t make anyone whole,but hopes it can make a difference. “Over the years, our foundation has done quite a bit of good with our neighbors in Montana, Nebraska and Kansas when they’ve had floods and fires and blizzards; this is now our opportunity to help our own friends and neighbors to get through this long brutal winter.” Money can be donated to this fund through the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association website.
