This photograph taken by the Kansas Emergency Relief Committee shows cattle suffering from drought conditions in Cloud County, Kansas. The KERC worked alongside the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, which began a cattle-purchasing program in 1934. Emaciated cattle, as shown in this photograph were destroyed after purchase, and healthy cattle were shipped to slaughter with the meat being distributed to poor families needing relief.
