SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — The condition of South Dakota's winter wheat crop has deteriorated over the past month.

The Agriculture Department says in its latest crop report that only 49 percent of the crop is in good condition, and none is in excellent condition. That compares with 58 percent in those two categories at the beginning of both February and January.

Cattle and calf conditions in the state are rated 91 percent good to excellent. Sheep and lamb conditions are 87 percent good to excellent.

The report says hay and stock water supplies are in good shape in the state.
