WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - An animal feed shortage in Minnesota has prompted lawmakers to urge the Department of Agriculture to take emergency action. Senator Amy Klobuchar and Reps. Rick Nolan, Collin Peterson and Tim Walz sent a letter asking for emergency actions to bring relief to farmers struggling with a lack of available animal feed. Exceptional losses to the alfalfa crop brought on by drought and a late spring have led to the shortage. In addition to other requests, the lawmakers asked for authorizations to allow for additional livestock grazing on Conservation Reserve and Wetlands Reserve land.
