How you can participate
South Dakota sale barn owners understand the program and are willing to provide the opportunity for cattle producers to participate in the Send a Cow to College campaign.
"The process is simple," said Dave Barz, a large animal veterinarian with Northwest Veterinary & Supply in Parkston, and active in fundraising for the new center. "Cattlemen willing to support this cause should complete a Deed of Gift form that is available at their sale barn of choice. This transfers ownership of the cow or cows to the SDSU Foundation and relieves cattlemen of any tax consequences for the value of the animals donated to the campaign. That's all there is to it."
