South Dakota producers face new challenges each day. SDSU Extension is your partner, providing resources and expertise to help meet production goals.
Weather conditions in the Northern Plains can present more than a few challenges for livestock producers. From below zero or blizzard conditions during winter or even spring, to heat waves in the summer months, farmers and ranchers need to be prepared for rapidly changing conditions to provide the best care for their livestock and minimize their risks of losses.
Noxious weed control in pastures is becoming more of a challenge. Most ground commercial spray businesses are no longer spraying pastures. If they are, there may be restrictions on the time they will spray, what products they will spray, or they may only spray if they also have all of the rest of your spraying business.
SDSU Swine Day will be held at Wilbert Square Event Center in Brookings starting at 9 a.m. CDT.
