Start Date: 7/10/2017 -  
The U.S. Department of Agriculture gave authorization for early haying of Conservation Reserve Program acres beginning on July 16 to help farmers and ranchers in the Dakotas and Montana enduring drought. Counties experiencing drought severity of D2 or greater on the U.S. Drought Monitor, as well as being within 150 miles of a county in D2, make farmers and ranchers eligible for early haying. CRP contract holders who hay their acreage can donate their hay or take a 25 percent loss to their annual CRP payment if they sell it. The Bismarck Tribune (N.D.), July 10, 2017
