A drought affects everyone, some more than others. It affects the livelihood of our local farmers, the amount of food distributed locally and nationally, as well as, the amount of food available for our livestock. On Tuesday, September 18th, Branson Bank and the University of Missouri Extension Office hosted the “Drought Survival Program and Dinner,” offering important information on how to plan for food shortages after a drought.
