     DENVER (AP) - Hundreds of pounds of industrial hemp seeds bound from Canada to Colorado have been seized by federal authorities in North Dakota.  The seizure marked the latest bump along the road to legalization of marijuana's non-intoxicating cousin.
     The federal Farm Bill signed into law earlier this year allows cultivation of hemp under certain circumstances, but importing hemp seeds requires permission from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
     Hemp activist Tom McClain says he was carrying 350 pounds of seeds for industrial hemp known as X-59, or Hemp Nut, when border agents stopped him.  The seeds were confiscated Saturday at the crossing near Pembina after McClain says he declared the seven bags. McClain has not been charged with a crime.
     Shawn Neudauer of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed the seizure but declined to comment because of the ongoing investigation.


     UNDATED (AP) - The Northern Lights Dairy near Mandan is hosting a weekend event to help educate people about where their food comes from.  The "Breakfast on the Farm" event from 7-11 am Saturday will feature breakfast and entertainment, including hay rides, tours and a petting zoo.
     State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the event will be both educational and fun. It's also free.  To reach the Northern Lights Dairy from Main Street in Mandan, turn south on Highway 6 and drive about 14 miles. Turn right at 54th Street.

     CASSELTON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say it took sheriff's deputies in Cass County more than two hours to round up a steer that got loose on its way to a slaughterhouse.  KFGO-AM reports the steer ran through yards, down streets and even through a construction zone on Wednesday.
     Deputy Sheriff Keenan Zundel says men on horseback had to assist in corralling the animal. A veterinarian shot tranquilizer darts to the animal, but they had no immediate effect.  The steer was eventually cornered against a fence and pushed into a trailer. The animal was not injured.  
     The steer was being transported to Casselton Cold Storage when it got loose.
