South Dakota Stock Growers Battling Environmental Groups On Land Issues

South Dakota Stock Grower members are concerned by issues from animal activists and environmental groups.  Stock Growers President Bob Fortune of Belvidere says they’re watching a possible land conservation attempt being led by the US Fish and Wildlife Agency in southeast South Dakota that could impact the entire state.

Fortune says their other concern is to stop activists from increasing the penalties during the next legislative session for animal cruelty ramping it up to a felony or even taking it to voters as a ballot issue. He says his group is working with State Vet Dr. Dustin Oedekoven on that measure.

Fortune says while these are upcoming challenges for his group they will defend Stock Growers rights on these issues.
