WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas farm groups are putting together a workshop on electric fencing and livestock watering options amid the deepening drought.

The free, daylong workshop will be held Sept. 11 near Jamestown in Republic County.

Kansas livestock producers are facing challenges with dwindling stock water supplies and the need to fence conservation reserve acreage newly opened up for grazing.

Agriculture Department conservationist Mark Green will demonstrate the latest electric fence products and discuss installation techniques. Green will also cover livestock watering issues such as water distribution for improved grazing.

The workshop is sponsored by the Kansas Rural Center and other farm groups with funding from the Agriculture Department's Risk Management Agency.
