BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Stockmen's Association and its foundation have started a relief program to help flood-stricken ranchers in Nebraska.

The two groups have pledged $10,000 to kick-start the Nebraska in Need Disaster Relief Program. All of the money raised will go to Nebraska ranchers.

The Nebraska Farm Bureau says farm and ranch losses in that state could reach $1 billion. North Dakota Stockmen's Foundation President Warren Zenker says "what Nebraska has been through is almost unimaginable."
