Heavy Rains Benefit Cattle Ranchers

 WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Drenching rains in recent weeks across the nation's major livestock-grazing regions are greening pastures just as ranchers move cattle out for summer. The annual rite of driving cattle out to pasture comes as ranchers try to rebuild herds that were decimated when they sold off much of their livestock because of drought-shriveled pastures and skyrocketing hay prices.
