Missouri’s drought isn’t letting up anytime soon. Governor Mike Parson told Missouri Farm Bureau members the winter will be a challenge, but the state is doing what it can to help. He tells Brownfield he’s extended an executive order to renew a drought alert through next spring.
“It frees up some opportunities to use state owned lands to get hay or use it for pasture. We can go into water resoures and lift some weight limits to move hay.”
Missouri Ag Director Chris Chinn says the biggest challenge for farmers and ranchers heading into 2023 is a lack of rain.
