North Dakota Ag Groups Create Drought Aid Program
Corn and cattle producers combine efforts for good cause
The state's largest livestock group, North Dakota Stockmen's Association, and its largest corn organizations have launched Hope for the Heartland Drought Relief Fund. It will help cattle ranchers devastated by a summer of drought by providing them with free or low-cost grazing or corn stalk bales.
The North Dakota Corn Growers Association and Corn Utilization Council are urging farmers and thier members to donate to the cause. Donations will be distributed in early 2018 and applications are being accepted until the end of this year.
