South Dakota Stock Growers To Discuss Land Management And Animal Welfare

South Dakota Stock Growers gathering in Rapid City today and tomorrow for their 122nd. Annual convention will be hearing about property rights and land management issues.  Association Executive Director Silvia Christen says one of their speakers will be leading the discussion on that which could also end up on their policy agenda.

Christen says State Veterinarian Dr. Dustin Oedekoven and Courtney De La Rosa of the South Dakota Agriculture Department will update their members on possible state animal welfare legislation coming up in the next session. She says that likely will also be part of their policy debate.

She says public lands grazing issues will also come up during their convention.

Christen says they’ll also elect a new President and Board members during their annual meeting on Saturday.
