The dry weather is also affecting cattle. A record number of cows are going to slaughter.
Across the state, farmers are unable to feed their cows.
The weather is causing grass to become brittle and inedible for the animals.
Meanwhile, hay and corn feed is too expensive.
Normally in our area there are 6 to 7-hundred cattle sold a week.
Just last week more than 18-hundred were sold, cattle farmers say 80 percent are slaughtered.
