BISMARCK – The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) and the North Dakota Agriculture in the Classroom Council are seeking proposals for developing and conducting educational programs and materials to help young people understand the importance of agriculture in North Dakota and in their own lives.
BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has asked the U.S. Farm Service Agency (FSA) to consider allowing farmers and ranchers who cannot access their summer pastures to graze their animals on Conservation Reserve Program acres.
BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says livestock producers in flood-threatened areas of central and western North Dakota should be moving or be ready to move their animals away from danger.
“Aerial surveys along the Missouri River and its tributaries have spotted livestock in danger of being cut off by rising water,” Goehring said. “Producers need to be moving those animals to higher ground now.”
