NMSU To Hold Roundtable Discussion On Drought Assistance

New Mexico State University is holding a forum this week to discuss drought assistance programs.

The program will be held Tuesday during its Rancher's Roundtable at NMSU's Southwest Center for Rangeland Sustainability in Corona.

Center Superintendent Shad Cox says there are various programs to assist agricultural producers financially during the drought, so the school has assembled a panel of representatives from various federal and state agencies to explain them.

The program will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
