Nebraska ranchers worried about dealing with a hot and dry summer can get planning help from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

The university put together a website with advice on managing a ranch during periods of drought that may come in handy in the state this year.

The western two-thirds of Nebraska are already experiencing drought conditions.

The website at http://drought.unl.edu/ranchplan includes practical advice and examples of how other ranchers have dealt with
drought.

The university's Jerry Volesky says the most important thing ranchers need to do during drought is adjust their grazing plans and stocking rates.

A team of drought experts will offer ranchers advice at the Nebraska Grazing Conference in Kearney on Aug. 15.
