Hay Lottery Expands to North, South Dakota and Montana

August 10, 2017 11:49 AM

Applications are due Aug. 31 for a hay lottery that will bring some relief to cattle producers in North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana, as they struggle to find feed supplies in the midst of a summer-long drought and wildfire recovery.

In order to participate, producers must be located in a D2, D3 or D4 designated county; own at least 25 animal unit equivalents of beef or dairy cattle, bison or sheep; and have a third-party verification contact person, such as a veterinarian or lending institution partner. Find the online application here.

If you have problems filling in the form, or are located in South Dakota or Montana, call (844) 642-4752 for more information.

“Our farmers and ranchers are so grateful for what they are doing,” says Doug Goehring, North Dakota Agriculture Commissioners during a recent AgriTalk interview. “One semi load of hay may not seem like it’s a whole lot but its meaningful to these guys who think that people remember them, recognize what they are going through and it’s just a little token of appreciation for all they have to endure.”
