South Dakota NRCS Holding Second EQIP Blizzard Relief Sign Up

 

South Dakota Natural Resources Conservation Service officials have announced a second sign up is now being held for producers hurt by the October blizzard. NRCS State EQIP Coordinater Jennifer Wurtz says most of the assistance will go for helping of disposal of dead livestock.

Wurtz says other help through this sign up will help producers replace conservation projects that were harmed or lost due to the blizzard’s effects.

She says producers may also get help for replacing water sources that were contaminated by dead livestock.  Wurtz says producers can sign up at their local NRCS office.

The Sign up deadline is January 17.
