South Dakotans to hear answers to drought questions

Posted: Updated:

South Dakotans can hear answers to their drought questions at various extension offices across the state Monday evening.  

Monday at 7 p.m. CDT, specialists from across the state are gathering to address farmers and ranchers as part of a Drought Update held at the eight Extension Regional Centers throughout the state.  

According to the South Dakota State University Extension Office, this is the largest drought on record since 1988 and South Dakota's farmers and ranchers are witnesses to its negative impact on crops, livestock and livelihood.

The specialists are all participating in the SDSU Extension Drought Update through live streaming technology. They are discussing the current situation, answering questions and providing South Dakotans with options to help weather the impact of the drought.

The SDSU Extension Office says the specialists will also answer common questions about crop harvest, limited feed and water supplies and stresses on household budgets caused by the drought.

South Dakotans are encouraged to contact their Regional Extension Center with questions or if they need help in finding resources to weather the drought.

The discussion is being held at Regional Extension Centers in Aberdeen, Lemmon, Mitchell, Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Watertown and Winner.
