Start Date: 5/8/2018 -  
Water hauling and supplemental feeding continued in parts of South Texas that missed the rain, and some producers began selling livestock. Farmers felt that drought was already affecting corn yield potential, and cotton was not growing for drought and insufficient heat units. In La Salle County, drought kept farmers from planting rice and soybeans. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), May 8, 2018
