  • Land exchange concerns landowners, commissioners
    When land owner Martha Whitcher spoke to the Pennington County Commission April 21 about the proposed Cain Creek Land Exchange, she pulled no punches. 
    “Today it’s 2,500 acres. Tomorrow, it may be 3,000 acres. The day after that, it may be 10,000” she said. “Pennington County cannot handle any more land taken away from the tax rolls.”
  • Happenings in D.C.: Estate Tax and Trade Deals
    The U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the estate tax, a long awaited measure for many farm organizations.
  • Snowpack melts early across the West
     West-wide snowpack is melting earlier than usual, according to data from the fourth 2015 forecast by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service 
  • Meat exports slowly recovering from port delays
    “We didn’t see much relief from the shipping backlog until March, and container traffic in some ports still has not returned to normal,” said USMEF President and CEO Philip Seng. “However, the new labor contract agreement definitely sent positive signals to our Asian buyers and allowed the U.S. meat industry to begin the process of putting this crisis behind us. The momentum exports regained in February is encouraging, and we’re looking forward to further improvement when March results are published.”
