BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The number of anglers fishing in North Dakota continues to increase.
 
     The state Game and Fish Department says license sales for 2013-14 set a record for a second straight year. More than 219,000 fishing licenses were sold last year, an increase of 1,000 from the previous year. Licenses are good from April 1 of one year to March 31 of the next.
 
     Game and Fish says record totals of 160,100 resident licenses and 59,300 nonresident licenses were sold last year.
 
     State Fisheries Chief Greg Power attributes the record sales to an aggressive stocking program and a record number of fishable lakes in North Dakota - about 400 of them.
 
     Lake Sakakawea, Devils Lake and Lake Oahe/Missouri River remain the top three fisheries in the state.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An animal science professor at North Dakota State University is leading a project that aims to boost beef cattle production on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
 
     Robert Maddock says outdated land management strategies have degraded range conditions on the 3,600-square mile reservation that straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border.
 
     The federal Agriculture Department project hopes to improve grazing practices to make the land better suited to cattle production. Maddock says if beef production were to increase, it could pave the way for a meat processing plant on the reservation that's home to 9,000 people.
