The U.S. Drought Monitor shows an increase in the moderate to extreme drought conditions in South Dakota. Lieutenant Governor Larry Rhoden says most of South Dakota got rain in the last few days, but that rain has little impact. “There will be a hay shortage. We’ve seen that in the past, especially west of the river, but what we haven’t seen as often is how widespread the drought is and its impact on hay supplies. This will be a major problem for producers.” State officials are trying to help alleviate the impacts of drought. There’s a state drought task force in place and in early July, Governor Kristi Noem approved early haying ditches. South Dakota Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources Secretary Hunter Roberts thinks more can be done with federal resources. Hear the story.
