South Dakota Farm Bureau Calls For Stricter Animal Abuse Penalties

South Dakota Farm Bureau Calls For Stricter Animal Abuse Penalties

 

At their annual meeting over the weekend South Dakota Farm Bureau members re elected President Scott Vanderwal to another two year term.  He says policy wise it was a pretty quiet meeting but one resolution was approved calling for higher statewide penalties for animal abuse.

Vanderwal says the intent of the resolution is to get ahead of any possible stringent ballot measure brought forward by HSUS or other activist groups to curtail animal agriculture.. He says another proposal Farm Bureau delegates approved is to call for the state to guarantee loans for ranchers negatively impacted by the October blizzard.

Vanderwal says his group would support state legislative efforts to achieve that.
