Millions of animals affected

Thousands of ranchers and millions of animals have been affected by the storm in South Dakota.  And the consequences don’t stop with them.

The mud from melted snow this spring could string the cattle out and cause pneumonia and other sickness.

More than  15,000 South Dakota ranchers will endure physical, mental and financial stress and the aftermath is a testament to their dedication and resilience.
