Drought a big concern heading into winter

Missouri Farm Bureau President Garrett Hawkins says hay supplies are a concern for the state’s cattle producers.

“It was a perfect storm of high fertilizer costs impacting people’s ability to apply and how much, if at all. We knew production would be down. Then, you put in place drought conditions that further diminished production as well as the quality of hay.”

Hawkins tells Brownfield there are more culled cattle going to market.
