Help for drought-plagued farmers

Agriculture Commissioner James Comer reminds Kentucky livestock producers that the Kentucky Department of Agriculture can help them find badly needed forages for their animals as many Kentucky pastures and hay fields have dried up in this year’s drought.

“Kentucky farmers feel frustrated and helpless because of this summer’s hot, dry weather,” Commissioner Comer said. “Many of our livestock producers are having to feed hay and other forages that normally would be set aside for winter. The department’s forage sales directory and hay hotline can help them find the forages their animals need.”
