No Water, No Hay: What farmers are battling out West from the drought
Farmers and ranchers out West are struggling with the lack of water and hay.
Stockman Oklahoma Livestock Marketing says producers have some grass, but no hay due to the lack of rain, and many smaller operators rely on hay year round. The marketing service says in Oklahoma, they do not have any advice on where a producer could actually find hay right now.
The shortage is leading many producers to sell their herds earlier than normal, but Stockman has not seen any producers completely sell out yet.
