According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, most areas of Rock and Walworth counties are facing severe drought. In most cases, this means crop yields are down, pasture growth is sparse, livestock are removed from grazing, water use is high, and groundwater pumping increases. Additionally, areas in southeast Walworth county are experiencing extreme drought, which typically means fairs have fewer entries, steamflow is reduced, water temperatures are warm, oxygen content is warm, and more.
