This photo was taken during the annual Flint Hills prairie burn. Farmers burn off their pastures every April. The burning helps to jumpstart the prairie grass growth that cattle can feed on during the summer and fall months.

Prairie burns typically occur from the first week of April to about April 15th. Temperatures vary widely from year to year, from near freezing, to near 90 degrees. Average high temps are in the lower 60 degree range. The prairie burns are dependant on the weather. Too windy, wet, or dry, and farmers will postpone burning until better conditions prevail.
