I am a Perkins County rancher and we are experiencing a severe drought for the second year in a row. We have dams that are dry, germination on crops is poor and what did come up is stressed. Hay production is about 5% of normal due to the fact that only draws and the south side of a few hills were worth haying. From Perkins County, South Dakota, on July 12, 2017
