Farmers and ranchers who belong to the Minnehaha and Lincoln County Farm Bureau organizations made a donation of cat and dog food in response to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society’s shortage announced last week.
“As farmers and ranchers, we are used to working with large animals. But large or small, all animals are important, and we are glad we could help out the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society with this donation of food,” said Ron Krogstad, a farmer from Baltic, S.D. and a member of the Minnehaha County Farm Bureau.
The Minnehaha County Farm Bureau and the Lincoln County Farm Bureau each donated 900 pounds of pet food to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society. Virgil Meyer, a farmer from Humboldt, S.D. and a member of the Minnehaha County Farm Bureau, helped deliver the pet food (shown in the photos below). Inmates from the Department of Corrections helped unload the pet food at the humane society.
The South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) is a grassroots organization with more than 13,000 farm, ranch and rural families in its membership. SDFB works hard every day to represent, uphold and improve the state’s number one industry – agriculture.
