David Heiens' fields are blanketed with snow, but it's not enough to cure the drought problem the agriculture industry faces.
"A farmer needs to kind of plan ahead and make lemonade out of lemons," Heiens said.
The kind of help farmers may receive because of the drought conditions are now complicated by recent developments to the Farm Bill. Congress renewed parts of the 2008 Farm Bill during their 'fiscal cliff' negotiations. The extension is for nine months.
Heiens says he thinks consumers will see the biggest increase in prices of meat, with the drought driving up feed prices.
Heiens also said that insurance does help during a disaster, but it doesn't cover everything.
"Insurance is like anything else," Heiens said. "Your house burns down or the worse thing happens. Insurance is only going to pay for a certain percentage"
Heiens and the other farmers hope for help elsewhere when the snow melts and their work continues.
