Drought conditions have worsened dramatically in North Dakota over the past week....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Drought conditions have worsened dramatically in North Dakota over the past week. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map shows about 8 percent of the state in extreme drought. None of the state was in that category a week ago. The areas of extreme drought are in the southwest, central and northwest. Another 32 percent of the state is severe drought and 27 percent is in moderate drought. The rest of the state is rated abnormally dry.
     The drought conditions are harming crops and also have prompted many ranchers to sell off cattle.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring will lead a drought roundtable meeting from 2-4 p.m., Tuesday, June 27, at the Farm Credit Services building, 1600 Old Red Trail NW, Mandan.

    "This roundtable is an opportunity for producers, ag groups and agencies to discuss the current drought situation in North Dakota and the options available to producers," said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. "Topics will include the status of the drought, forage quality and livestock management strategies, crop insurance forage options and the Farm Service Agency process to access Conservation Reserve Program acres for emergency haying and grazing."

    Commissioner Goehring and the following individuals are scheduled to speak:

- Kevin Sedivic, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension Rangeland Specialist
- Carl Dahlen, NDSU Extension Animal Scientist
- Shad Weber, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Senior Risk Management Specialist
- Brad Olson, North Dakota Farm Service Agency Conservation Program Manager
