Emergency Haying with South Dakota Drought

The dry, hot weather continues in South Dakota. With no mention of rain, temperatures stay in the 90 degree range.

That has not helped the drought conditions that we are facing. Farmers and ranchers all across the state are feeling the pressure.

For some help, the federal government is allowing emergency haying of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres in South Dakota counties dealing with drought.

Certain CRP acres earlier were opened to grazing. Haying is now being added, starting Sunday (July 16).

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows more than half of South Dakota in some stage of drought. Some areas in the north are in extreme drought.
