South Dakota Stockgrowers host area meetings on Nov. 29-30

The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association will be on the road the end of November hosting a series of meetings in Union Center, Reva, Isabel and Lemmon. Everyone is invited to attend and participate in the discussion at these meetings.

South Dakota State Veterinarian Dr. Dustin Oedekoven will speak at the meetings in Isabel and Lemmon. Additionally, Stockgrowers Animal ID Committee Chair Kenny Fox will present information regarding the latest proposal by USDA to implement a national animal identification program.

Of particular interest to ranchers will be information regarding the proposed child labor laws that would limit family corporations from hiring their own children and ban 14- and 15-year-olds from doing most ranch work, including riding horses to gather livestock. The rules propose other limits on young people to drive and operate tractors, working around livestock and children working in bad weather conditions.

Coffee and bars will be served at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at the Union Center Community Room in Union Center, and supper will be served at 6:30 p.m. at the Reva Hall in Reva. On Wednesday, Nov. 30, Stockgrowers will serve lunch at 11 a.m. at Sparky’s in Isabel, and supper will be served at 5:30 p.m. at the R-Bar in Lemmon.
