ND voters add farmer protection to constitution

In this Oct. 12, 2011 file photo, Doyle Johannes, who supports North Dakota constitutional amendment aimed at protecting the right to farm and ranch, stands next to his cattle feed lot on his farm in Underwood. N.D. Voters in heavily agriculture-dependent North Dakota became the first to enshrine the right to farm in their state constitution, a move that some say could have far-reaching effects on the way animals are raised, the use of genetic modification in breeding and land use.
