Drought Resources for Ranchers

The sheer number of articles in our archives related to drought in the ranching industry is fairly discouraging. In the last 10 years alone we’ve addressed drought in…well, we don’t really want to know how many years. It’s a fact of life here on the Northern Plains, so we’ve compiled some resources that are current, as well as some that have some ongoing value, regardless of this year’s specific situation. So take a look through these stories and let us know if there’s anything you’d like to know that we haven’t covered. You can reach us at editorial@tsln-fre.com.

We’re still working on finding some good sources for a story about how to make it rain.
