Ranchers appeal NASS rangeland insurance data;GLENDIVE, Mont. — Don Evans isn’t the kind of fellow who gets in the news much. He pretty much minds his own business on his ranch near Glendive, Mont. But he’s pretty angry that the National Agricultural Statistics Service stands alone against several other federal U.S. Department of Agriculture agencies, in estimating his 2008 hay crop at 91 percent normal in 2008, when he probably had a 75 percent to 80 percent loss.
