(MOUNT HOPE, Kan) —
It’s not as bad as last year... but farmers worry, it's getting close. Hot and dry conditions are taking a toll across the state.
Crops like corn, soybeans and sorghum are largely in only fair condition and ranchers are also concerned about water supplies for their livestock.
Last summer’s brutal drought taught local farmers a lesson to be prepared and figure out new ways to get water to cattle in need.
