BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota’s top agriculture official warned on Thursday that the full damage that this year’s floods will have on farmers and ranchers has yet to be seen.

Farmers and ranchers in 11 western states should be able to protect both their operations and sage grouse habitat through an agreement between two federal agencies.
The arrangement announced Tuesday by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar involves the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service and Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service.
The agencies will work together to help landowners protect the sage grouse and its habitat. For instance, ranchers could keep cattle from grazing sage grouse areas during the bird’s breeding times.

Couples who work together in a farm/ranch operation have a unique relationship. Not only are the typical stressors found in relationships present, but additional stressors related to the farm, or working together, may also have a strong presence in the relationship.

With a sense of trepidation, regret and inevitability, many North Dakotans are watching the face of the Badlands change.
During the past several decades, a dense network of roads serving oil development spread across the sandstone, clay and scoria buttes and ravines that set this part of the world apart from the prairie. Producing wells thump away into the Badlands quiet. Pipelines snake across the rough terrain, fording beneath the sandy bottom of the Little Missouri River.
A Montana man who has threatened to mine gravel on a historic Badlands ranch says he plans to auction off the mineral rights next year and if he doesn’t get a high enough bid, he will just dig up the minerals himself.
