Animal Agriculture Awareness Week

This is Animal Agriculture Awareness Week in North Dakota.

Officials say animal agriculture in North Dakota generates about $2.6 billion in revenues, with an economic impact of more than $12 billion.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says animal agriculture has an impact on everyone’s daily lives, from the food that people eat to products they use every day.

North Dakotans primarily raise beef cattle, hogs, sheep, dairy cows, honey bees and turkeys.
