  • Protecting animal agriculture’s roots: Cultivating relationships important
    How the animal agriculture industry can share their roots with the public while also protecting against extreme animal rights activism was the focus of presentations at the Animal Agriculture Alliance’s 2018 Stakeholders Summit, themed “Protect Your Roots,” at the Renaissance Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Va. May 3 and 4.
  • The Year of the Hay
    With limited access to land, the choice for large Chinese dairies is to import feed. All types of hay are coveted by the Chinese market, however those with high nutrient density (more than 20 percent protein and more than 150 Relative Feed Value) are definitively attractive.
  • House farm bill fails over food assistance, immigration
    The $867 billion farm bill included funding for farm/ranch subsidies, trade promotion programs and the much talked about Foot and Mouth Disease vaccine bank. Conservation programs were also funded in this version but to a lesser extent than the current farm bill. It also called for stricter work and job training requirements for nutrition assistance recipients, which Democrats warned would force 2 million people off of food stamps.
  • The recently-released hay and pasture conditions report doesn’t look particularly good for producers across most of the country. The bearish May WASDE report - higher production and larger ending stocks for 2018 - compounds the problem, but pasture conditions could very well improve as the season goes on.
  • SDSU Extension will host two AI Schools in South Dakota. The three-day artificial insemination (AI) schools will be held June 13, 14 and 15, 2018 at the SDSU Cottonwood Range and Livestock Field Station near Philip and September 26, 27 and 28, 2018 in Mitchell at the SDSU Extension Regional Center in Mitchell.
  • Premier annual ag event is renamed Sioux Empire Livestock Show
     A 65-year local tradition in agriculture has a new name. The Sioux Empire Farm Show has been renamed the Sioux Empire Livestock Show. 
  • The training is focused toward agricultural producers, law enforcement, firefighters, public health officials, county commissioners, veterinarians and others related to agriculture or emergency management.
  • Certified Hereford Beef is once again hosting the annual Certified Hereford Beef recipe contest in celebration of “Beef Month,” celebrated each May.
    Professional and amateur chefs, foodies and bloggers are all welcome to enter the contest.
