Start Date: 6/5/2018 -  
In parts of the Texas Panhandle, pastures were burned up, hay was scarce and hay prices were high as hot, dry and windy conditions affected the region. Producers did not expect cotton to emerge without rain and were irrigating corn and cotton fields nonstop to try to meet water demands. Cattle were being sold quickly.
