South Dakota Conservationist Says Much Learned From The Drought

Weather conditions have done a one eighty from last year’s heat and drought, to more normal conditions this summer.  South Dakota State Conservationist Jeff  Zimprich says livestock producers learned a lot from last year’s drought.

Zimprich says last year’s drought taught producers the value of soil health.

Zimprich says good soil health is achieved by using good practices like minimum or no till, rotating crops, cover crops and having a good nutrient and pest management system in place.
