Start Date: 6/12/2018 -  
Plant stress and decreased production were apparent in most of East Texas. In Cherokee County, drought was stressing pastures and hay meadows and drying up surface water. Producers were buying hay from other areas. The yield from the first hay cutting in Harrison County was about 60 percent of normal. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), June 12, 2018
