Hay cuttings being “way off” in White County is causing producers to cull or sell cattle early while row-crop farmers worry about not having enough water with the state experiencing its hottest summer in 10 years. Along with issues like inflation, it’s been a “double whammy” for farmers.

White County is listed under the moderate drought conditions by the National Drought Mitigation Center as the state experiences unusually dry conditions and 100-plus temperatures. Some rain and lower temperatures, including highs in the 80s, are forecast for later this week.
