Divide Fire Donations 

Looking for a way to help fellow producers impacted by the Divide Fire? The Divide Fire in Perkins county this past month burned almost 12,000 acres in a three day period. Feed availability is a concern for producers in this area as a lack of moisture and burned forage will likely cause a serious situation as we continue in the spring and summer. SDSU Regional Center has set up an account for monetary donations and is also taking donations of hay and fencing supplies.
