Please join us on Monday, April 29th for a Farm Bill Conservation Forum to be held at the Izaak Walton of America’s Sioux Falls chapter. As our elected officials take up debate on the 2013 Farm Bill, we’ll discuss what the Farm Bill means for South Dakota and the state’s critical natural resources.
