Lee County-  Drought conditions across Georgia unified the state Monday in prayer for rain. State officials designated Monday as a Prayer Day for rain and those who have been affected by the state's drought. Governor Sonny Perdue prayed with farmers Monday at the Georgia Farm Bureau headquarters in Macon. Farmers say they'll take all the prayers they can get.

"I don't think it can hurt can it. We still need more rain and I think there's still about a month left in this crop's growing so all we can get can help us," said Marty Erickson, Dairy Manager.

Erickson said if they don't get more rain, corn yields will likely suffer and it could force farmers to supplement that crop with Sorghum to have enough feed for dairy cows in Lee County.
