Sad to see all the complete cattle herds being sold off...we are gonna stick it out even though it is gonna cost us pretty big...I was visiting a local farmer/rancher today and had to change the subject. He was visibly upset to the point of almost shedding tears when describing the current drought. He is in his 60s btw and said he’s never seen anything like this in his lifetime. The forecast makes my stomach hurt; if I was a rancher, I’d have an ulcer from this by now.
That is not encouraging to hear, considering we are now 1 year and almost 5 months into this drought.Regardless of rain, which we began to have regularly after our year of exceptional drought , It was 4 years of recovery of habitat and some plots just now showing some normalcy but yet still sub par.
