Bad, northern IL is starting to look like Texas with the drought we have had. Corn is King here, but the farmers are going to take a bath with the loss of corn crop.
They put even more hay fields into corn so now with this long drought we will have even less of a pretty non existent crop of hay already. We have a bit under a 2 month supply of hay and a couple extra round bales for a group of 7, and we need rain badly. Everyone here is already starting to feed hay since the pastures have all turned into crunchy grass. And then to top it off we are in the triple digits. It was 102 today and for the last 5 days. They think we will have a break on Saturday, down to a whopping 92.
Looks like we will be feeding a lot of pelleted type feed with hay in it. Costly.
