Gov. Dennis Daugaard has extended an executive order that waives the standard 36-hour carcass disposal requirement for animals killed in an early October blizzard.
Daugaard is also extending a waiver of the overweight limits for truckers hauling carcasses of cattle.
Both orders were initially signed on Oct. 11, and were set to expire Friday. The executive orders have been extended until Nov. 30.
Daugaard says ranchers across the state are still dealing with devastating losses of between 15,000 and 30,000 animals and the extensions are necessary.
