February 2, 2012
The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association will be on the road in early February to visit with producers in Watertown, Aberdeen and Mobridge. Any Stockgrowers members or interested producers are encouraged to attend the events, ask questions, and share their ideas on policy issues and the work of the Stockgrowers.
Tuesday, Feb. 7 Stockgrowers will host a booth at the Watertown Farm Show near the Supreme Row arena. Wednesday, Feb. 8 Stockgrowers will be at Hub City Livestock in Aberdeen serving coffee and cookies during the sale. Mobridge Livestock will host the Stockgrowers on Thursday, Feb. 9, during the sale.
“Stockgrowers is excited to get out and hear from producers in the northeastern part of the state,” said Silvia Christen, Executive Director for the Stockgrowers. “We invite everyone to stop by and visit with us when we’re in your area. We really want input from everyone and look forward to meeting you.”
Of particular interest to ranchers will be information regarding bills pending in the current legislative session including Stockgrower priorities, country of origin labeling, free trade agreements and animal identification proposals currently pending at USDA.
