Farmers who’ve spent decades living and working near the James River in northern South Dakota say this spring’s flooding is the worst they’ve seen.
Pastures and fields are under water. Livestock are mired in mud trying to get around feedlots.
“Man oh man, losses in feed yards are big,” said Bill Richter of rural Hecla.
I get upset with letters like Richard Betting’s in The Jamestown Sun on April 22. The thought seems to be blame the farmers. The Red, Sheyenne and James rivers just broke records established approximately 100 years ago. I don’t believe there was much drainage then and I know there were not hundreds of acres of concrete and asphalt along the rivers.
