Platte Livestock sets rollover auction
PLATTE — Platte Livestock Auction will host a rollover auction at 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 30 to benefit the Ranchers Relief Fund.
The fund is assisting those affected by the early October storm, which devastated livestock owners in western South Dakota.
The steer to be sold has been donated by the John and Jeremy Rasmussen families.
The fund will be administered by Black Hills Area Community Foundation, in cooperation with the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association and the South Dakota Sheep Growers Association, for the direct benefit of the livestock producers impacted by this devastating blizzard.
A rollover is an auction where an animal is sold and then donated back to be sold again. The steer can be “bought” for any amount. Donations also will be accepted prior to the auction. For more information, call Platte Livestock at 1-800-337-2655.
