HOLEY CRAP!! BuddyTheElf you have my sympathy! Seriously how do you all make it with NO rain??? Where does your water supply come from? I see your in Texas WOW I had no idea that Texas was in such a severe drought. I'm really sorry. Depending on where you are in Texas you probably can't grow alfalfa either, even in the best of times. My family survived the Oklahoma dust bowl and those stories are a part of my collective family heritage. I remember my great grandmother telling those stories when we were kids. We grew up on the farm. To hear Ma and Poppie (that was what we called our great grandma and grandpa) tell about the black blizzards and how it didn't rain for years and years on end....... ( I want to say 7 years with no real rain not positrive on the # of years but it was a LOT) its really an eye opener! And as everyone now knows that was mostly man made, that drought brought on by removing all the vegetation of the native grass prairie fore farming. Then with no plants to do what they do .... no rainfall . I hope that's not what we are facing now!
