SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota’s winter wheat crop and livestock herds appear to be in good shape as the winter progresses.

The federal Agriculture Department says in its monthly crop report that 60 percent of the winter wheat crop is rated good to excellent, and only 16 percent is rated poor or very poor.

Cattle and calf conditions are rated 77 percent good to excellent, and sheep and lamb conditions 76 percent in those categories.

Stockwater supplies are 89 percent adequate to surplus, and hay and forage supplies are 95 percent in those categories.
