Start Date: 6/5/2018 -  
The lack of rain in Southwest Texas hurt growing conditions. Hay growers made a first cutting, but may not get a good second cutting. In some counties, wheat and oats were not harvested for grain, due to drought, but were used for grazing instead. Fall calves were sold early amid drought conditions. Water availability for livestock and wildlife was monitored. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), June 5, 2018
