Ranchers statewide can now apply to collect roadside hay in Nebraska to help feed their livestock during the drought.

Gov. Dave Heineman issued an order Thursday expanding roadside haying to all 93 counties.

The program is also now open to all Nebraska residents, not just adjoining landowners.

Under roadside haying, the state stops mowing along state roads and allows producers to harvest the forage for their livestock.

More information about roadside haying is available online at
