FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The condition of North Dakota’s winter wheat crop continues to decline.

The Agriculture Department says in its latest crop report that 53 percent of the winter wheat is rated in either good or excellent condition. A report earlier this month showed a combined 64 percent rating.

The report says the lack of snow cover had livestock producers worried about the grazing and haying potential, but those same conditions allowed for productive lambing and calving with minimal losses.

Cattle and calf conditions were rated 89 percent excellent or good. Calving was 26 percent complete.

Sheep and lamb conditions were 82 percent excellent or good. Lambing was 43 percent finished.
