USDA Allows Haying And Grazing On CRP Land

USDA Allows Haying And Grazing On CRP Land

Farm and ranchers looking for hay got some welcome news on Wednesday.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that it will also allow emergency haying and grazing on sensitive wetland CRP acres.

South Dakota State Senator John Thune says the announcement shows how serious this summer's drought is.

"The fact that it is being opened up now, which typically it's not, is, I think, a recognition by the Department of Agriculture of just how severe conditions have gotten,” Thune said.

Senator Time Johnson applauded the USDA for its decision to release the CRP acres and also announced that the agency has now declared 25 South Dakota counties primary natural disaster areas.
