South Dakota Sheep Growers To Talk Predator Control At Convention

South Dakota Sheep Growers To Talk Predator Control At Convention

 

One of the major topics of discussion for South Dakota Sheep Growers at their convention in Brookings today and tomorrow is Predator Control.  President Max Matthews of Bison says they had some success with getting increased state funding for control of coyotes and other predators during the last state legislative session.

Matthews says they’re also working with SDSU Extension Sheep field specialist Dave Olilla in getting more younger sheep producers interested in the Association and SDSU’s beginning producer program.

He says they’ll be electing officers at their convention and that he’s interested in serving again as President after serving his first term this past year
