Even weeks after the snow and rain, livestock producers are having a difficult time either getting to cattle or bringing them home. North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring heard about these challenges during a series of meetings in the central and eastern parts of the state.

Just share because quite frankly you’re not the only one in this, but you may feel like it.” Listen to the full interview.
