From this story in the Topeka Capital-Journal:
Federal officials added Kansas counties to the roster allowed to engage in emergency grazing and haying in response to the drought, the state's U.S. senators said Thursday. Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran, both Republicans, said half of the state's counties were now included in U.S. Department of Agriculture declarations allowing conservation reserve program acreage to be opened to hay cutting or grazing by livestock. "I am grateful USDA has taken additional steps to expand relief to those producers suffering from this severe drought and higher feed costs," Roberts said. CRP emergency grazing was approved for 16 counties. They are Butler, Chase, Chautauqua, Cherokee, Cowley, Elk, Greeley, Greenwood, Labette, Lyon, Montgomery, Morris, Neosho, Sedgwick, Sumner and Wilson counties. The six counties now open to cutting of CRP land for hay are Elk, Ellsworth, Greenwood, Scott, Sumner and Wilson. Farmers and ranchers who choose to participate in the feeding programs must contact a county office of the USDA's Farm Services Agency.
