2018 drought photos from the farm

Slideshow: A look at crop conditions on northwest Missouri farms.

One town. Two farms. One day.

It did not take long to find farmers willing to share their experiences with the 2018 drought. Both were from the same town, Hamilton, Mo., but on the opposite ends of town.

Row crop farmer Joe Clevenger drove around the county to show damage to corn and soybean fields, pastures and even the town water system. Cattleman John Graham stopped stacking corn bales and gathered his sons, Caleb and Jacob, around to share their experience with the drought.

Click through the slideshow to see some of the scenes from their farms this summer.
