South Dakota Representatives Send Letter to Vilsack

South Dakota representatives Stephanie Herseth Sandlin and Sens. John Thune and Tim Johnson wrote a joint letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack asking for written rules for the livestock indemnity program stemming from the 2008 Farm Bill.
In the letter officials stated that farmers and ranchers have lost 15 to 20 percent of livestock due to terrible weather including blizzards.
The Livestock Indemnity Program would help producers recover their documented losses.
