South Dakota Ag Secretary Says Producers Working On Blizzard Recovery

South Dakota Ag Secretary Says Producers Working On Blizzard Recovery

South Dakota’s livestock producers are continuing cleanup and recovery efforts from the early October blizzard that killed thousands of livestock.  State Agriculture Secretary Lucas Lentsch says they have no official death loss numbers yet but expect those to continue adding up.

He says with the federal government now operating, cleanup should go smoother but the real help will come when Congress is able to pass a new farm bill that contains livestock indemnity payments.

Lentsch says the carcass cleanup has been a burdensome process and they’re hoping to move ahead to the next step in recovery.

He says many South Dakotans have responded well to the crisis by assisting and contributing to those impacted by the blizzard. He says that is continuing to move forward.
