As the Dec. 31 application deadline approaches, Silvia Christen, executive director of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, urges ranchers who experienced loss to send in their application before the deadline. After the Dec. 31 deadline, the application process will not reopen.

Any producer who suffered livestock losses in the Atlas Disaster-declared counties and the adjoining counties is eligible for consideration. This includes counties outside of South Dakota.
