Weed-free certification questioned

North Dakota’s Agriculture De-partment wants to get out of the business of certifying livestock forage and rock products as weed-free, but county officials say they don’t want the job pushed on them. State and county officials agree on the need for a statewide certification program. Feed could be certified weed-free, for example, when a horse owner takes hay into a national park, or gravel could be certified weed-free for a landowner who buys it but wants no weeds brought on his property with the rocks.
