LITTLE FALLS - Gov. Tim Pawlenty and agriculture officials will tour a dairy and corn farm in the Little Falls area Tuesday morning to see how Minnesota's drought is affecting farm operations.
Last week, Pawlenty asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency to begin a formal damage assessment, the first step toward a possible disaster declaration.
