Despite ample snowfall in parts of the state, drought conditions are still being experienced in much of eastern and southeastern Colorado.

Cattle ranchers are still having problems because of low soil moisture, high temperatures and overgrazing, and rangeland grass isn't growing.

Mary Miller, of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, says they might have less feed for their animals this summer.

Meanwhile, officials have been warning an unprecedented amount of landowners about allowing dust to blow from their property.

Crowley County has issued as many as 15 citations.
