Gov. Mead Asks For Drought Declaration

Wyoming Conditions (Courtesy of U.S.G.S.)

Due to the  continued hot, dry  conditions,   Governor Matt Mead has asked U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, to issue an agricultural disaster declaration for all of Wyoming, except Teton County. If granted, such a declaration could provide some federal emergency assistance to Wyoming producers.

The governor says  over the past month, County Commissioners throughout Wyoming have requested agricultural disaster designations for the 2012 agricultural production year. After consultation with the Wyoming Farm Service Agency it is clear that every Wyoming county with the exception of Teton County has suffered grazing loss and dryland hay loss in excess of the disaster threshold.
