Farmers monitor livestock and low hay supply during extreme heat

At the Kendrick Farm in northeast, Missouri they raise cattle and right now they are eating grass and while they have hay saved up for dry conditions and the winter, it is a fraction of what it should be right now.

“Hay got really short. There was a lot of hay brought into the area from 50 miles plus for instance and it was expensive and there were people who did not opt to do that and had to sell cows,” Kendrick added.

He hopes the rain will help the grass grow, so they can build up their hay stockpile before winter.
