The wheat harvest in West Central Texas was nearly finished with below average yields. As livestock water sources became critically low, some producers began hauling water. Pastures were becoming extremely short, and ranchers were opting to sell older cows in some areas. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), June 12, 2018
