Donations from the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association have boosted reward funds for information leading to convictions in two high-profile cattle-killing cases on opposite sides of the state.

Warmer weather conditions across North Dakota helped farmers make significant progress on their fieldwork.

The Farm Rescue organization is getting a large donation from the Otto Bremer Foundation and Bremer Bank.
The donations total $200,000 over two years and will be used for equipment, training and general operations.
