Texas Feels Effects of Extreme Drought in U.S.
It’s a sad irony: Just as much of Texas pulled out of exceptional drought, the rest of the country entered it. Much of the severely dry weather is now outside Texas’ borders, but as KUT’s Mose Buchele reports for StateImpact Texas, that doesn’t mean the state isn’t feeling the effects.
Remember last year when the Texas drought forced ranchers to sell off their herds or ship cattle to parts of the country where there was enough hay to feed them? Well, times have changed.
“A lot of those cattle that went up north last year are now heading back south,” says Bexar County Agrilife Extension agent Brian Davis.
