    Congratulations to Polk County Livestock

    From the moment Catie Erickson found out she won a lamb through the Aksarben, she was on a mission. Catie figured it was a waste to pull an empty trailer when it could instead be filled with donated supplies for the flood victims of Nebraska. Catie took this idea to the livestock group and everyone was on board. Donations from all over Minnesota along with North Dakota, South Dakota, Maryland, North Carolina, and New York come pouring in.
