Gov extends executive orders for cattle disposal
PIERRE (AP) — Gov. Dennis Daugaard has extended an executive order that waives the standard 36-hour carcass disposal requirement for animals killed in an early October blizzard.
Daugaard is also extending a waiver of the overweight limits for truckers hauling carcasses of cattle.
Both orders were initially signed on Oct. 11, and were set to expire Friday. The executive orders have been extended until Nov. 30. Daugaard says the extensions are necessary.
