The recent rainfalls won’t change Missouri’s request that the federal government declare nearly the entire state a drought disaster area. Judy Grundler with the Missouri Department of Agriculture says the rain came too late to help some of Missouri’s crops. And, Grundler says the real impact might be felt this Winter when the harvest comes in and there’s no hay in storage because it was used up feeding livestock this Summer. She suggests farmers and ranchers should start contacting their local farm service agency offices now to see what kind of aid they might get should the drought declaration be granted by Washington.
