The winter of 2001-2002 carries all the signs we watch for in predicting hydrologic drought.  Should this year have drought in store for us, it will be the third year of drought conditions.

The pages and links provided below are intended to help producers assess their vulnerability to drought and prepare their response.

  • The man who has a short pasture needs a rain much worse than his neighbor who has ample forage on the range. But, when the rains come, it will do the least good for the fellow who needs it most.
- Dr. E. J. Dyksterhuis
