The Larson ranch near Hamill is experiencing severe impacts from drought conditions. Though they were able to harvest their winter wheat with minimal issues, their corn and cane crops have stunted growth. Crops such as alfalfa that are usually able to be cut at least twice may only grow enough for one cutting. (Caitlynn Peetz/Republic)

Alfalfa harvested on June 21 south of Medina, N.d., yielded about half of a typical crop, due to three untimely early frosts and lack of rain. Farmr-ranch operator David Deutscher says the regrowth was blossoming at 5-6 inches tall, so a second cutting is unlikely. Photo taken June 21, 2016, south of Medina, N.D.
