WICHITA, Kan. – Farm ponds that are used to water livestock at the Woodston farm of Jerry McReynolds are so dry this spring he is taking the opportunity to clean silt from their bottom.
Many farmers in north-central Kansas are doing the same thing this spring, he said.
“We have been in this dry cycle for six years,” McReynolds said. “For the last three years, we have been able to drive through all of our ponds – sad, but true.”
