A looming drought, beef industry changes and dairy creativity

The Around Farm Progress podcast connects with editors in Kansas and Pennsylvania

Wet weather has plagued eastern growers, but the situation in the Great Plains is a little different, especially in Western Kansas. Meanwhile, out East the weather has been tough but so has the dairy market.

In this episode of Around Farm Progress, P.J. Griekspoor, editor, Kansas Farmer, shares insight on drought in Western Kansas, changing water practices, and her in-depth look at the state's beef processing industry.

Out East, wet and cold weather has been hard on crops, but the bigger issue is dairy farms. Chris Torres, editor, American Agriculturist, offers a crop update and discusses innovation and creativity he's found in the region's dairy business.
