Hearing reports of some wheat fields producing less than 20 bushels per acre led Mark Watne, president of North Dakota Farmers Union, to ask for federal disaster payments for crop and livestock producers. "There have been great efforts to get hay and forage into the hands of ranchers," said Watne. "That won't fix the financial disaster that is looming." Grand Forks Herald (N.D.), Aug. 3, 2017
