(DRIGGS, ID) – Farmers in Teton Valley want Teton County officials to declare an emergency. With the wettest August in over 40 years, the storms have ruined barley and hay crops.

Hay farmer Harley Hill tells KIDK that an emergency declaration would allow farmers to file for government assistance and meet their contractual obligations to local grain and hay brokers.
