BEEF Daily | Ranchers Offer Drought Testimonies

“The drought of 2011 is really taking a toll on my ranch, just like everyone else here in Texas. My stock tanks, thank goodness, have held out but are getting worse each day. Soon an old water well on my place will have to be set up just to get fresh water to my herd. Usually by now, I have had three cuttings of hay. This year, I haven’t even had one. Luckily, I have had a few good years of hay cutting and had my barns full. But, that has been depleted along with a constant feeding of meal.”

For more fall market perspectives, read the complete article by Burt Rutherford here.
