State Ag Department Wants Input On Drought Relief
WATERTOWN, SD -

Friday marks the deadline for South Dakota farmers and ranchers to share their ideas on drought disaster relief with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture.

Producers are encouraged to e-mail their comments and suggestions by Friday, Nov. 16, to agmail@state.sd.us, call 605-773-5425, or write the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, 523 E Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD 57501.
