Praying For Rain: Ranchers And Farmers Face Another Dry Summer
Praying For Rain: Ranchers And Farmers Face Another Dry Summer

Listen
AIR DATE: March 27, 2013

Last summer was one of the worst on record for Nevada ranchers.

The ranchers who made it through last summer could be facing another scorcher this year. How will they cope? And what will it mean for the ranchers who stay?
