USDA grants CRP emergency grazing in ND, SD, MT

US Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue has authorized emergency grazing for CRP lands in South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana.

Severe and extreme drought conditions have reduced forage for livestock and Perdue says in some of the hardest-hit areas, herds are already being culled.

Emergency grazing was announced Friday and will extend through September 30th, unless conditions improve.  Producers need to work with their NRCS offices to come up with modified conservation plans. FSA state committees will monitor the implementation of emergency grazing.
