Dry Days in Texas

Jan 09, 2009

   In our area of Goliad County,Texas we have had less than an inch of rain in over 120 days. Our region is under a bad drought, forcing us to feed a lot of hay. The ponds are dry, the grass is gone, and the input costs are too high to maintain many cattle on our land. Despite low prices at the auction barn we hauled 1/3 of our cattle to market today. It is easier to take the loss at the market than to continue the expense of a maintaining the herd until the rain returns.

I feel for you. A few years ago, we had the dryest 2 years since the 30s. Even some of the trees quit being green. Hope it all works out for the best for you.
