Farm Bill Set For Vote Aids SD Farmers, Ranchers

Farm Bill Set For Vote Aids SD Farmers, Ranchers

A massive, five-year farm bill set for a Wednesday floor vote in the U.S. House offers important safety nets for South Dakota farmers and ranchers.

The compromise deal reached by congressional leaders on Monday would reopen avenues of federal support allowing ranchers devastated by last October's early-season blizzard to apply for emergency relief and support from the federal government.
