WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A newly released government report is
putting some hard numbers on the dismal hay crop last year in
Kansas.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Thursday that
the state produced 1.95 tons of alfalfa hay last year, the lowest
production since 1956 and a 21 percent drop from 2010.

Production of other types of hay totaled 2.45 million tons in
2011. That was 24 percent less than the previous year's production
and the lowest since 1983.
