The South Dakota Farmers Union will hold their 106th state convention on Thursday and Friday. “We have a great line-up of speakers coming,” says Karla Hofhenke, executive director. “We have FSA Administrator Zach Ducheneaux, Risk Management Agency Administrator Marsha Bunger and we’re also having a panel discussion on hemp.” The 2021 drought may also get attention. “It wasn’t good in 2021. We got a few inches of rain in the fall, but we’re not over the drought yet. Heading into 2022, farmers and ranchers are concerned drought could linger. We need more moisture,” says Hofhenke. “Navigating dry conditions will be a challenging in the new year. We’re trying to help farmers make the best decisions possible by giving them much-needed resources.” The South Dakota Farmers Union Convention will be on Thursday and Friday in Huron, South Dakota.
