Stockgrowers applaud efforts to restore aerial predator funding

South Dakota Stockgrowers Association appreciates the work Senator Thune and Congresswoman Noem have done in an effort to restore the aerial predator funds. These funds were earmarked funding that were lost in the restructuring of Animal Plant Health Inspection Service Division of Wildlife Services (APHIS’s WS ) program.

According to Stockgrower’s President Kenny Fox, Belvidere, SD, Wildlife Services funds have been allocated to different states in different amounts.

Fox stated, “It is extremely unfortunate that these funds are no longer available, especially at a time of year when our young livestock are so vulnerable – not to mention the impact this will have on young wildlife.”

Fox reiterated that “funds from this service for the predator control program should be divided equally among states.”

“We certainly appreciate Senator Thune and Congresswoman Noem for the letter sent to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture requesting a reversal of the present funding process,” Fox said.
