AFFECTED AREAS:
Beadle County, SD
Wolsey, SD
Faulk County, SD

Start Date: 4/1/2017 - End Date: 8/4/2017
I have had to use alternative grazing for 125 cows & 130 head of breeding heifers. I have incurred increased transportation costs & feed costs. I have taken several loads down to Nebraska to be custom grazed as my grazing opportunity here dried up. I also had 30% of normal hay production. From Beadle County, South Dakota, on August 4, 2017
