ND Governor Declares Animal Agriculture Awareness Week

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple has proclaimed this week Animal Agriculture Awareness Week in the state.

Officials say animal agriculture in North Dakota generates about $2.6 billion in revenues, with an economic impact of more than $12 billion.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says animal agriculture has an impact on everyone's daily lives, from the food that people eat to products they use every day. He says producers in the state are stewards of the land and committed to animal welfare.

North Dakotans primarily raise beef cattle, hogs, sheep, dairy cows, honey bees and turkeys.

Other state livestock includes horses, bison, farmed elk, goats and non-traditional livestock such as white-tail and fallow deer and furbearers.
