Standing Rock Renewal Field Day Canceled

Heavy rain forces the field day to be canceled.

A field day on the Standing Rock Reservation renewal project scheduled for Aug. 7 near Mahto, S.D., has been canceled because of the heavy rain in the field site area.

The project, a collaborative effort of the Standing Rock Sioux tribal community, Sitting Bull College, North Dakota State University, South Dakota State University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, was designed to provide information on the progress of efforts to develop a natural beef production enterprise on the reservation.

“Unfortunately, the field site area has been saturated by the heavy rain,” says project director Robert Maddock, who also is an NDSU Extension Service meats specialist and an associate professor in NDSU’s Animal Sciences Department. “We look forward to holding this event in the early summer of 2015.”

For more information about the project, contact Jim Garrett, the project coordinator at Sitting Bull College, at (701) 455-2288.
