The forecast for 2023 red meat and poultry production is lowered from last month, on lower beef, pork, and broiler forecasts. Beef production is reduced on a slower pace of marketings in the third quarter. This decline is only partly offset by higher expected carcass weights in that quarter and higher expected cow slaughter in the third and fourth quarters.
According to DANR, South Dakota boasts 185 dedicated beekeepers, with approximately 100 of them maintaining their bees for commercial honey production. The state consistently ranks among the top five in the nation for the total number of bee colonies.
