Australia's most populous state entirely in drought

The emergency conditions have been caused by a period of unusually dry weather with less than 10mm recorded in some parts of the state.
A drier-than-expected June and July has left many farmers with failing crops, a short supply of water and diminishing livestock feed. Others have been forced to shoot starving cattle.
"Anybody on the land that will make a phone call to the Department of Environment can get permission to shoot nearly whatever they want to shoot and it's unaudited and unchecked and that's our concern - animal welfare", Borda told Australian Broadcasting Corp. "They are shooting them because they just can't afford to feed them any more", said Ms Tash Johnston, co-founder of charity Drought Angels.
The state of New South Wales (NSW) in Australia is now entirely in drought, officials have confirmed.
News reports that New South Wales produces about twenty-five percent of Australia's agricultural output. Around 60% of neighbouring Queensland is also in drought, as well as parts of Victoria and South Australia.
The sight of wide expanses of dry earth greets farmers every day around the state.
Australia has long dealt with harsh, dry conditions, especially inland, away from coastal areas popular with tourists.
It includes two lump sum payments worth up to Aus$12,000 per household, and changes to an assets test to grant support to thousands more farmers.
The reason was the largest in the last half-century drought.
"We are the land of droughts and flooding rains". Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said earlier this week conditions were so bad that the country had to accept it was a "land of drought and flooding rains".
"I think the only problem is it was probably a little bit late coming for some people".
"This increase will give farming families what they sorely lack during drought-cash income". We've got no idea so we run blind.
Less than 10 millimetres of rainfall has been recorded in the 800,000-square kilometre state over the past month.
Grazier Mark Wylie has spent A$30,000 in the past six weeks boring for groundwater, to no avail.
"If the drought doesn't break, it's going to happen", he added, referring to farms going out of business.
