Cattle producers in northern Louisiana were concerned about water supplies for their herds as small ponds might not be able to meet demand, leading some farmers to rely on well water. Cool-season grasses, such as rye and clover, were not germinating, leaving cattle producers to offer supplemental feed to their livestock. Monroe News-Star (La.), Dec. 2, 2017
