Raising Money for SD Farmers

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A local bank wants to help South Dakota ranchers and farmers who lost cattle and crops in a big snowstorm a few weeks ago.

First Interstate Bank partnered up with the Public Auction Yards. They are working with several livestock markets across the country with a rollover auction, meaning the animals can be sold more than once.

Public Auction Yards Manager, Bob Cook, said all proceeds will go to the relief fund.

"First Interstate State Bank is kind of putting their money where their mouth is. They're buying the heifer, or animal that will symbolically have a roll over sale, and give people an opportunity to buy or donate to the South Dakota Relief Fund," said Cook.

Cook said they raised between $15,000 to $16,000 at the Billings Live auction last week, and hope to raise that much.

If you want to donate, you can go to the Public Auction Yards on Friday at 1 PM, or call 245-6447.
