State Offers Farmers Help

Farmers looking for forage for their animals can turn to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. The drought has dried up many pastures and hay fields; Western Kentucky is in extreme drought and Central Kentucky is in moderate drought. State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer is reactivating the department's hay hotline to connect farmers who have hay to sell with those who need to buy.
