BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the advent of harvest season means both equipment operators and motorists should be extra careful on highways and rural roads.
"We will soon be seeing much more harvesting equipment out on the road as producers and custom combiners move from field to field,” Goehring said. “This equipment is slower and less maneuverable than ordinary cars and trucks. Please try to give the operators a little extra room.”
BISMARCK – North Dakota cattle producers should make sure any livestock they buy or receive from other states meets North Dakota’s import requirements.
"Severe drought conditions in the South, Southwest and parts of the Midwest are forcing livestock owners to sell part or all of their herds or move them to other states for grazing or feeding,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring.
