A rancher in the Nebraska Sandhills says time is running out to get relief from an on-going drought.
Frank Beel tells Brownfield he has 30 days before he’ll have to make tough decisions about grazing. “If we don’t get any rain toward the end of April, we’re going to have to ship off some yearling cattle. Our fall calves, we try to hold off until to July to sell them at the sale barn.”
He says the last measurable rain fell in late October and conditions are similar to 2012.
