Hand County, SD

Start Date: 5/25/2017 - End Date: 8/6/2017
Drought began at the end of May with lack of moisture to pastures. We downsized our herd by a third by the middle of June. Corn and beans suffering but holding. July drought continued with occasional showers less than half inch. What August brings? We live, farm, and ranch in Hand County, South Dakota. We've dug into our retirement to pay bills.
