MINOT, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Sens. Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven are asking the head of Canadian Pacific Railway to improve agriculture shipping delays before harvest.
 
     The senators met Monday in Minot with company CEO E. Hunter Harrison and agriculture producers to discuss a backlog in railcars entering the upcoming harvest.
 
     Hoeven says the meeting was productive and it was important for Harrison to hear first-hand from farmers and ranchers.
 
     Heitkamp says the railway must commit to decreasing the backlog and wait times. She says the wait times for CP cars increased between June and August and the company has been reluctant to give information about the delays.
 
     The senators met last week with BNSF Railway executive director Matt Rose.

MANDAREE, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the two men who were killed after their vehicle struck a cow that was wandering on a road in western North Dakota.
 
     The Patrol says the victims were 27-year-old Kaleb Newel Steed of Mountain Home, Idaho, and 19-year-old Jake Alexander Holm of St. George, Utah.
 
     The patrol says the men's vehicle entered a ditch and rolled several times after striking the black cow Friday night about 12 miles east of Mandaree.
 
     Authorities say Holm was wearing a seatbelt and Steed was not. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
