Today, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue approved North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum’s request for a secretarial disaster designation. Forty-seven of 53 counties in the state are included, making assistance available to farmers and ranchers.
“We deeply appreciate Secretary Perdue’s quick response to our request, because help can’t come soon enough for our farmers and ranchers facing one of the most difficult and stressful seasons on record,” Burgum said. “We continue to explore every available avenue to make sure our ag producers have the resources and tools they need to cope with these unprecedented wet conditions that are delaying the harvest and hurting our livestock producers. We’re extremely grateful to the state, federal and local officials and all the agencies that helped prepare the disaster request.” Read more.
