Dennis Daugaard (R-SD) has declared a statewide emergency because of the ongoing drought conditions in his state.
As part of the state of emergency, South Dakota will ease haying and transportation restrictions to assist ag producers.
Meanwhile in North Dakota, Doug Goehring, state agriculture commissioner, got a first-hand look at the drought conditions.
He says it is “heartbreaking” to see livestock producers lined up for almost a mile at auction markets.
There have been calls to open Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres to early haying and grazing.
