Farmers Union Wants CRP Opened To Haying, Grazing

July 11, 2012, 5:11 PM

HURON, SD -

The South Dakota Farmers Union is urging Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to open Conservation Reserve Program acres in South Dakota to haying and grazing to combat the lingering drought.

Farmers Union President Doug Sombke says in a letter to Vilsack sent Wednesday that South Dakota has gone from severe and moderate drought levels to extreme and severe, resulting in a loss of haying capability and capacity.

Sombke says that without sufficient feed, some cattle producers could be forced to sell parts of their herds.

He says the move to allow CRP haying and grazing will help ranchers retain their livestock rather than sell off numbers to withstand the remainder of the drought.
