With the high heat and little rain, drought conditions in parts of Nebraska are getting worse.
The western two-thirds of the state is in a moderate drought.
Pasturelands are also suffering from this moderate to severe drought we're seeing making it hard to keep cattle grazing on it.
"Unless we get some rain it could be kind of grim," said Dr. Ron Seymour from UNL extension in Hastings.
Pasturelands across western Nebraska are drying up from the lack of precipitation.
"We're kind of moving into unchartered territory here because we're not accustomed to an extra month of growing weather," said Al Dutcher
And with these drought conditions ranchers are having to sell their cattle because of the lack of grass land to graze on.
Ag experts say the early planting season puts stress on the irrigation usage.
