Drought is top of mind in nearly every corner of North Dakota. Greg Lardy, vice president for agricultural affairs, North Dakota State University has been traveling across the state taking in various Extension Research Center field days. “We started in out west in Hettinger, Dickinson and Williston and ended this past week in Langdon. We saw some crop that didn’t look too bad and some that didn’t look good at all. There is just a lot of variability in the crop.” In particular, Lardy says livestock producers across the state are being heavily impacted by the ongoing drought conditions. “Pasture conditions are not good, water supplies are poor and the hay crop is going to be real short. Those producers are making culling decisions to make adjustments on their ranch.” There are a plethora of drought-related resources available through Extension, found here.
