Impacts Reports

Walsenburg, southern CO

Conditions have become "pretty crunchy" over the last 10-14 days. It's been dry, windy, and hot from central Las Animas County and north toward Walsenburg (and to the foothills). There's been movement in grazing because growth has stopped, and some people have begun hauling water for the livestock. Something to keep an eye on.

Kiowa County, CO FSA

Conditions lately have been drying out, but Eads did get about .2" on Monday night. The western half of Kiowa County is drier. Wheat harvest is in full swing and wheat yields are looking very good, with yield reports well above average this year.
