Dennis Daugaard has declared a statewide emergency because of the ongoing drought conditions in South Dakota. As part of the State of Emergency, the state will ease haying and transportation restrictions to assist agriculture producers. “The drought has really hurt grass and hay production in much of the state, which is making our ag producers scramble to keep livestock fed. I’m hopeful that these changes will help keep livestock on the farm until the drought breaks,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard. Effective immediately, farmers and ranchers may cut and bale state highway ditches across the entire state. The South Dakota Department of Transportation has suspended their mowing operations until July 5 to allow farmers to access more of the hay along the ditches. Dur- ing this time SDDOT will continue to mow in urban areas. For safety reasons, mowing in the medians of divided four-lane highways is prohibited and a permit is still required for mowing interstate right-of-ways. Because of the dry conditions, farmers and ranchers are strongly encouraged to carry fire extinguishers on mowing equipment. Producers are also reminded to be watchful of traffic along the highways and to always yield to oncoming traffic. The state is also authorizing producers to travel statewide without a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to ease transport of feed in the drought stricken area. With the emergency drought disaster declaration federal trucking regulations are waived for the transportation of goods such as hay. FMCSA regulations ranging from 390399 are waived for the next 30 days. Those include general regulations, driving training regulations, special driving considerations, parts and accessories, medical cards, hours of service, and proof of annual inspections. Also as part of an emergency declaration, permits are available to allow oversize movement of hay up to 12 feet wide and to extend the time allowed for movement of vehicles from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., provided the load has reflectorized or lighted oversize load signs on the front and back of the vehicle(s). The permits are free and available by contacting the South Dakota Highway Patrol Permitting Office at 605-698-3925. For more information on state highway ditch mowing, call Greg Fuller, SDDOT director of operations at 605-773-3256. Preventing Wildfires on the Farm and Ranch RAPID CITY, S.D. – Because of dry conditions across much of the state, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s Wildland Fire Division (SDWF) urges farmers and ranchers to be prepared in case a wildfire starts while they are baling. “Fire safety in the field has two key components -- prevention and preparation in case a fire does break out," said division director Jay Esperance. "Both are important and can mean the difference between disaster and controlling the situation for minimum of damage or work stoppage." SDWF shares these fire safety reminders: • All machinery should contain an approved fire extinguisher of adequate size that is easily accessible. There are two types of extinguishers, the powder extinguisher for electrical and petroleum based fires and the water extinguisher for vegetative fires. You may need to carry both kinds of extinguishers. • Store hay away from combustibles such as gasoline, fertilizers and pesticides, as well as open burning areas like burn barrels, brush piles and vegetative burning. • Leave 30 feet of mowed grass, bare ground or rock between the bale groups, creating a solid fire break. • When cutting hay in open pastures, make sure the for your next adventure sickle bar or cutting discs are set above any protruding rocks. Sparks from the impact of the metal hitting rocks while cutting hay in pastures or road ditches start wildland fires every year in South Dakota.

Dennis Daugaard today is joining seven other governors at the White House to discuss workforce. The meetings will include discussions with President Donald Trump, cabinet secretaries and White House senior staff officials. “I thank President Trump for engaging the states on workforce, and I appreciate that his administration has consistently involved state leaders in discussions on issues of national importance,” Gov. Daugaard said. “Every state is dealing with a shortage of qualified workers, and this is an area where we can learn from one another.” The meeting is being held as a part of the President’s workforce development week, an effort led by Assistant to the President Ivanka Trump. Discussions are expected to center on best practices, apprenticeship opportunities, education, intragovernmental efforts and publicprivate partnerships. During the meeting, Gov. Daugaard plans to highlight current workforce efforts being undertaken in South Dakota, including the Build Dakota scholarship, South Dakota Works job search website and the state’s dual credit program. The Governor hopes to bring home best practices from the gathering and to encourage federal support for state workforce development efforts. 2015 Terra Trike www.missourivalleyshopper.com Visit our Web site at Looking for the www.missourivalleyshopper.com Gov.
