Rep. Dusty Johnson is co-sponsoring a bill in the U.S. House to help agricultural students at public schools.

The bill would provide federal grants for risk management training, teaching students about volatility in the livestock market. 

“Producers already face an uphill battle of unpredictable weather, understanding cattle prices doesn’t need to be an added challenge,” Johnson said in a release. “I’m proud to partner with my colleagues from cattle country to help best prepare our Ag economy and producers for the future.”

The grants would be available for public land-grant universities, like South Dakota State.
