Wisconsin Farm Bureau on how producers are coping with drought conditions

2021 is shaping up to be one of the driest years on record. Producers across the Northern Plains and upper Midwest are coping with those conditions as we enter summer.

Wisconsin Farm Bureau President Kevin Krentz speaks with RFD-TV’s own on current conditions in the state, how the drought is impacting livestock, and what he is hearing from producers.

“Although we have a very varied area across the state of rainfall and stuff, farmers, in general, are breathing a little bit of a sigh of relief with some timely rains earlier this week and more in the forecast moving forward,” he explains.
