ND: Non-essential AG Activities/Events Should be Canceled or Postponed
Non-essential AG Activities/Events Should be Canceled or Postponed
All agriculture-related activities and events that are not essential to the process of producing food and feed should be canceled or postponed until further notice.
“We understood there was some confusion regarding our prior guidance on ag activities and events that are non-essential,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. “Events such as livestock auction markets and ag auction sales are considered essential and can operate with certain precautions to mitigate risk. Events such as youth livestock sales, animal shows and other activities should either be canceled or moved to a date in the future and reassessed at that time.”
Sales and events that are able to be done online should be done that way until further notice. Individuals who organize events, and need to be on-site should take all necessary precautions to protect themselves and others.
