ND-Livestock Alliance

ND-Livestock Alliance
Alliance aims to advance North Dakota livestock industry
The Associated Press - August 14, 2017

BISMARCK, N.D. - Six groups in North Dakota have formed an alliance aimed at moving the state's livestock industry forward.

The North Dakota Livestock Alliance includes groups representing the pork, dairy, corn, soybean and ethanol industries. Chairman Craig Jarolimek says it will promote responsible livestock operations - not try to push through large confined animal feeding operations that often draw opposition.

But some people wonder about its potential impact on family farms.

Attorney Derrick Braaten represents a citizen group opposing a proposed hog farm near Buffalo. He worries the alliance will be influenced by industrial interests that care only about shareholders.

North Dakota Farmers Union is a member even though it's fought against corporate farming. President Mark Watne says the alliance can help build a more successful business model for livestock operations.
