Weather Favorable for Dakota Ag Thus Far


Mild weather in December was a boon for winter wheat and livestock in North Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its latest crop report that there is only light snow cover to protect winter wheat, but that 71 percent of the crop is in good to excellent condition. Only 7 percent is rated poor or very poor.

Cattle and calf and sheep and lamb conditions in the state both are rated 88 percent good to excellent. The report says livestock stress has been minimal so far this winter.

Hay supplies in North Dakota are rated 98 percent adequate to surplus, and stock water supplies are 84 percent in those categories.
