Issued: November 27, 2006


Declaring an Agricultural Disaster from Drought Conditions in Daggett County

WHEREAS, precipitation totals for the past several months have been minimal and created severe drought conditions in Daggett County;

WHEREAS, low precipitation levels have harmed the condition of the range, which may result in an inability to sustain further use;

WHEREAS, extreme drought conditions have resulted in the need to graze hay fields to allow the livestock to obtain adequate feed;

WHEREAS, this early grazing of hay fields has resulted in decreased forage production to harvest for winter feeding; and,

WHEREAS, these drought conditions have affected numerous farm and ranching operations and will impact the overall production and grazing yields for the 2007 season;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Jon M. Huntsman, Jr., Governor of the State of Utah, by virtue of the power vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the State of Utah do hereby declare an "Agricultural Disaster" for Daggett County due to the aforesaid drought conditions in the State of Utah.

IN TESTIMONY, WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused to be affixed the Great Seal of the State of Utah, this 27th day of November, 2006.
