A Pierre man convicted of two firearm felonies has been sentenced to almost four years in prison. Acting U.S. Attorney Randy Seiler says 40-year-old Clyde Aquallo was sentenced to 46 months in custody this week. Aquallo was convicted in January for possession of an unregistered firearm and prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Both charges carry a sentence of 46 months but he will serve both at the same time. Seiler says Aquallo was living on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in February when police came to his house for a domestic violence call. Seiler says police learned there were firearms in the house. They eventually found Aquallo owned several guns, including a sawed-off...

Millennial consumers are becoming more important to the beef industry. That’s because their views will impact not only current demand for beef, but demand well into the future. Consumers born between about 1980 and 2000, account for approximately a fourth of the U.S. population, and about a third of all adults – more than the Baby Boomer generation. Controlling about $200 billion in annual spending, they are certainly significant to beef sales today. Research conducted through the Beef Checkoff program in 2011 shows that these consumers don’t necessarily see food just as fuel or as sustenance. They view it as an adventure; a route to diverse cultural and social experiences. The research...

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop progress report that about 5 percent of the corn crop is seeded, near the five-year average pace. The planting of small grains crops is well ahead of the average. But subsoil moisture is rated 65 percent short or very short, and topsoil moisture is rated 67 percent short or very short. Only 25 percent of South Dakota's winter wheat crop is rated in good to excellent condition.

The cost of brand inspections for cattle could rise to $1.10 per head under a bill advanced by Nebraska lawmakers. Senators gave first-round approval Monday to an increase in the maximum fee that the Nebraska Brand Committee can charge. The committee inspects cattle and investigates missing and stolen cattle. Inspections are mandatory in the western two-thirds of Nebraska anytime a bovine animal changes ownership. Sen. Al Davis of Hyannis says the committee has reached the maximum fee that it can charge under state law. The ceiling was last increased from 65 cents to 75 cents per head in 2005. Lawmakers say the committee has been conservative in raising its fees and sometimes has been able...

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Nebraska corn farmers will plant 9.3 million acres of corn, equal to last year’s total acres planted. With Nebraska corn farmers’ intentions of planting 9.3 million acres of corn this year, farmers will spend about $280 per acre to get the crop in the ground and off to a good start. This figure, multiplied by the estimated 9.3 million corn acres to be planted in Nebraska, grows to more than a $2.6 billion investment by the state’s corn farmers over a two-month period. That amount does not include land costs, labor or equipment – it’s purely inputs like seed, fuel, and fertilizer. Looking beyond these initial inputs, however,...
