UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Farmers in Pierce County can get federal assistance in recovering from heavy hail damage on August 6. The U-S-D-A has declared Dakota County in Minnesota a primary disaster area. Pierce County and six others in Minnesota are also getting aid because they're contiguous to Dakota County.

Governor Scott Walker announced the Wisconsin part of the disaster declaration yesterday. It makes Pierce County farmers eligible for emergency loans and other help from the federal Farm Service Agency.
