FARGO, North Dakota — The majority of North Dakota's winter wheat crop remains in good condition as the winter wears on, despite diminished snow cover to protect the plants.

The Agriculture Department says in its latest crop report that 65 percent of the winter wheat is in good to excellent condition, compared with 71 percent last month. Only 7 percent is rated poor or very poor.

Cattle and calf conditions in the state are rated 91 percent good to excellent, and sheep and lamb conditions are 87 percent in those categories.

Hay supplies in North Dakota are rated 96 percent adequate to surplus, and stock water supplies are 90 percent in those categories.
