Missouri governor meets with Newton County dairy farm getting assistance

Updated:

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon met with a Newton County dairy farm family today approved for assistance under the Emergency Cost-Share Program which is designed to help farmers get through the severe drought that is devastating crops and livestock throughout the state.

The Wilson family will be installing a new well with the assistance.

"It means a lot," says Pam Wilson.  "In years where hay's so high and feed's so high, I mean it's definitely a blessing."

Governor Nixon also visited a farm today in Polk County, Missouri.
