Emergency Haying, Grazing Ok’d

KSAL StaffJuly 18, 2014

The Agriculture Department is allowing emergency haying and grazing on Conservation Reserve Program acreage in 44 Kansas counties.

Adrian Polansky is state executive director of the Kansas Farm Service Agency. He said Thursday the authorization provides relief for livestock producers who have suffered through severe drought. The drought has depleted hay supplies and affected the growth of hay and pasture in parts of Kansas. He says many producers cannot maintain their current herds without it.

The agency used its authority to allow the emergency measure once the primary nesting and rearing season ended in July 15 in counties designated on the U.S. Drought Monitor Map as being in a severe drought.
