WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A newly released government report is putting some hard numbers on the dismal hay crop last year in Kansas.
Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Thursday that the state produced 1.95 tons of alfalfa hay last year, the lowest production since 1956 and a 21 percent drop from 2010.
Production of other types of hay totaled 2.45 million tons in 2011. That was 24 percent less than the previous year's production and the lowest since 1983.
