How to preserve your Land, Livestock and Family during a Drought in Missouri

We just had some rain come in these past few days from Hurricane Isaac, however a reprieve from the heat, Missouri is still in a drought. Here's a good resource taken from the Missouri Department of Agriculture's  website regarding good tips on preserving yourself, family, land and livestock during the drought.

Our area is in the red zone, or the extreme drought zone.

Here are some resourceful links to pdf pamphlets that the MDA has put together free to the public.
Nitrate Accumulation in Plants, Feed
Invasive Fire Ants in Hay
Tips for Managing Farm and Drought-Related Stress

Good links for more information:
Crop Insurance Information
USDA Farm Service Agency

Remember the Missouri Department of Agriculture and Missouri Department of Conservation are great resources to refer to when looking for and planning a homestead, land development, or other uses.
