BISMARCK, N.D. - Ranchers who were affected by the extremely dry summer are being given more time to apply for state aid to help them pay for the cost of hauling in hay.

The Agriculture Department says the application deadline for the program will be from Nov. 3 through Nov. 13.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the program also will now reimburse eligible ranchers for hay transportation expenses incurred between June 1 and November 6th.
