Johnson, Officials Meet With SD Ranchers



Bookmark and Share

The blizzard that hit earlier this month has had a major effect on western South Dakota ranchers and has them asking when a Farm Bill will be passed in Washington.

Senator Tim Johnson and officials from the U.S. Department of Agriculture met with area livestock producers Tuesday afternoon to discuss the impact of the October storm. Ranchers discussed the damage that was done by this month's blizzard, and Johnson says he and his guests from the U.S.D.A will take all those concerns back to Washington, D.C.

Johnson places the Farm Bill blame on members of the House, saying he hopes they can get their act together so the bill is passed soon.

U.S.D.A Undersecretary for Farm and Foreign Agriculture Services Michael Scuse said Tuesday that the senator is just as frustrated as he is that they haven't been able to pass a Farm Bill and haven't had a meaningful Farm Bill for two years. He says without a Farm Bill there is no program in place to offer assistance to the ranchers.
