Minnesota State Cattlemen’s Association Executive Director Allison VanDerWal attended the formal announcement of Governor Walz’s drought relief proposal. “First of all, we’re thankful for the drought package and the discussion that will move forward to the Legislature. We like the grant program and what that could mean for cattle producers. The drought’s made an impact on producers differently throughout Minnesota.” VanDerWal says this is a good starting point. “They know it won’t make everyone whole. We’re still working on the dollar value, because Minnesota lawmakers will need to review. This is something we hope will work well with a federal package so there’s more aid for producers.”
