Drought in North Dakota during the summer of 2017 forced ranchers to sell about 100,000 cattle because pastures were dry and hay prices rose to as much as twice the normal cost, estimated agriculture commissioners Doug Goehring. Drought may have cost the state more than $300 million. The Bismarck Tribune (N.D.), Sept. 12, 2017
