WHEAT GROWERS ENCOURAGES MEMBER-OWNERS TO DONATE GRAIN TO RANCHER RELIEF FUND
Source: Wheat Growers news release

Wheat Growers' Rancher Relief fund continues to grow, and the cooperative reminds member-owners that they can still contribute donations of grain to the fund until June 1.

Wheat Growers and their member-owners have already contributed $32,225.50 to the South Dakota Rancher Relief Fund. Wheat Growers Board President Hal Clemensen, of Conde, SD, presented a check to Brad Bonhorst, a member of the board of directors of the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association at the organization's office in Pierre.

"We want to make sure our member-owners know they can still help those that suffered terrible loss last October," Clemensen said. "Our member-owners told their local Wheat Growers location how much grain they'd like to donate and the amount from that sale went directly from Wheat Growers to the Rancher Relief Fund in their name. And they still can do that until the end of this month."

The South Dakota Rancher Relief Fund was established to provide support and relief assistance to those impacted by the blizzard of October 4-7, 2013.

"Thank you to the member-owners who have already stepped up to help these ranchers as they struggle to get back on their feet," Clemensen said. "There's still time to help make a difference, because we are one big ag community here in the Dakotas, and we want to continue to help out as much as we can."
