Well over 100 cattlemen from northeast North Dakota gathered in Leeds Friday evening for the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association District 1 Roundup. It was a time for cattlemen to hear from industry leaders and professionals, as well as reflect on the past year and prepare for the new one. NDSA President Dan Rorvig says weather across the state continues to be top of mind for cattlemen. “That’s always a popular subject,” says Rorvig. “There are two weather patterns in the state. The northern tier is quite dry and the southern tier has too much moisture.” The association is also celebrating 90 years of membership. “We’re very proud of that. This organization was started to reduce cattle rustling, leading to the brand inspection program, which is still a major component.” Listen to the story.
