The new Valentine golf course finally has a name; it will be called “Fredericks Peak Golf Club” and will be marketed simply as ‘Fredericks Peak’. The golf course development board met Monday night and selected the name as the official name of the course. No one in the contest to name the course submitted the exact name selected by the board, but there were a few suggestions that were close.

Poultry shows have been canceled across South Dakota until further notice while officials attempt to halt the spread of bird flu. The South Dakota Animal Industry Board voted Wednesday to halt poultry exhibitions in the state, which will likely affect the South Dakota State Fair in September. As of Wednesday, more than 1.6 million turkeys and chickens in South Dakota had been affected by outbreaks of the H5N2 avian influenza virus. State Veterinarian Dustin Oedekoven says it's not completely clear how the highly pathogenic virus is spreading among farms. Other states including Minnesota and North Dakota also have halted poultry exhibitions as they combat the spread of the virus. In a related...

Farmers had trouble getting out in the field last week because of widespread rain across Nebraska, but most of the state's corn crop has been planted. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that 85 percent of the corn crop has been planted. That's only slightly behind the average of 87 percent for this time of year. The soybean crop isn't as far along as the corn crop. Roughly 41 percent of the soybeans have been planted. That's down from the average of 51 percent at this point. Much of the state received an inch or more of rain last week, and lowland flooding was a problem in parts of southeast Nebraska. That slowed field work.

South Dakota Stockgrowers Association President Bob Fortune says Congress shouldn't hastily act on repealing country-of-origin meat labeling. The World Trade Organization has ruled against U.S. labels on certain cuts of red meat that say where the animals were born, raised and slaughtered, saying the labels put Canadian and Mexican livestock at a disadvantage. Some are now calling for Congress to repeal the law, saying they fear retaliation from Mexico and Canada in the form of tariffs. Fortune says those countries would have to prove damages before imposing tariffs. He says Congress shouldn't get ahead of that process. Fortune says the Stockgrowers Association continues to support country-of-origin...

Canada and Mexico are readying trade sanctions against the United States after they won a meat labeling dispute on Monday, increasing pressure on the U.S. Congress to scrap the laws. The World Trade Organization upheld a complaint by Canada and Mexico about U.S. laws requiring retailers to label meat with the country where the animal was born, raised and slaughtered, saying they discriminated against imported livestock. Republicans, who have a majority in Congress, have signaled they may act to repeal the laws as early as this week, but consumer groups and many Democrats say they provide essential information for shoppers. Canadian beef and pork industries say the rules add to expenses and...
