Farm Aid assisting SD ranchers
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — As farmers in Colorado deal with serious flood damage and ranchers in South Dakota dig out from an early blizzard that killed tens of thousands of cattle, Farm Aid has activated its Family Farm Disaster Fund and issued emergency grants to help farm and ranch families begin to recover.
“Our hearts go out to the Colorado farmers who saw their precious soil ripped away by rushing waters and the South Dakota ranchers who have had the terrible task of finding and burying their dead cattle,” said Farm Aid president Willie Nelson in a news release.
Farm Aid is working with partners in disaster-affected areas to determine long-term needs of farmers and ranchers as they recover from these disasters. Those affected by the disasters in Colorado and South Dakota or by the government shutdown may contact Farm Aid at 1-800-FARM-AID (800-327-6243) or firstname.lastname@example.org .
