South Dakota Ag Secretary Looks At Livestock Losses Caused By Blizzard

 

Yesterday South Dakota Governor Dennis Duagaard, Senator John Thune and State Ag Secretary Lucas Lentsch toured areas of the state hit by last week’s record setting snow storm.   Lentsch says the aerial view just magnified the devastation.

He says they’re encouraging producers to report losses and are still compiling the death count for cattle, sheep, buffalo and horses.

Lentsch says they hope the devastation serves as a catalyst for getting the farm bill passed as it does contain livestock assistance.

A Ranchers Relief fund has also been established by the state’s livestock organizations to help affected producers.
