South Dakota State Vet Advises Producers Be Cautious On Carcass Disposal

Western South Dakota ranchers who are busy disposing of dead animals need to make sure and keep themselves safe during the process. That’s the advice of South Dakota State Veterinarian Dr. Dustin Oedekoven. He says with heavy rains lately, some carcasses are difficult to get to so producers need to be cautious.

Oedekoven says it’s difficult to say just how many livestock were lost but does encourage producers to call his office and report what they can.

He says Governor Daugaard has signed an executive order waiving the standard 36 hour carcass disposal requirement for animals killed in the recent blizzard. The waiver remains in effect until October 25.
