DNR Open Up State Land for Grazing and Haying

DES MOINES (AP) -- Iowa officials are opening up state land for haying and grazing to help farmers impacted by severe weather conditions.
   The state Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday that available land is primarily the upland grassland areas, although there will be some availability for "flash grazing" in northeast Iowa and other land not being leased to farmers.
   Officials say haying and grazing can start after July 15, when the primary nesting season for upland birds has been completed.
   Farmers are encouraged to set up temporary electric fencing and watering tanks because most state lands do not have proper fencing for cattle.
