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.
