South Dakota Stock Growers Executive Says Storm Recovery Taking Time

Western South Dakota ranchers are continuing to dig out from the early October storm. South Dakota Stock Grower’s Executive Director Silvia Christen says it not only takes time for dead carcass removal, finding the surviving livestock is a major challenge.

She says producers are keeping an eye on their animals to see they haven’t picked up any diseases or any other adverse effects from the storm.

Christen says while producers need Congress to pass a farm bill and appreciate all they help they’re getting through the ranchers relief fund, full recovery will take a lot of time, hard work and tough decisions.
