Gov. Jay Nixon visited a family farm near Ash Grove in Greene County on Aug. 21, 2012 to survey a new well that has been installed as a result of the Governor's emergency drought relief program. Gov. Nixon saw the well that is producing water for cattle being raised by livestock producer Kim Keith, and also provided an update on how the emergency program is helping Missouri farmers.
