Special Beef Sale Raises $20,000 for Woodward Tornado Victims
Sun, 22 Apr 2012 05:28:52 CDT
Last Friday, the Woodward Livestock Auction had a special auction in the middle of their regular Friday sale- it was aimed at assisting victims of the April 15th tornado that hit Woodward and claimed six lives. Feedlot operator Dale Moore worked with Auction Barn Owner Jerry Nine and donated four quarters of beef- processed into hamburger. There were also a couple of live animals donated for the effort. Moore tells us the beef quarters were sold 25 times- and the overall sale resulted in over $20,000 being raised for relief efforts.
