Start Date: 6/12/2018 -  
All field crops were being irrigated in South Texas. Some livestock producers have begun feeding hay as hay prices were rising. Pastures and rangelands continued to deteriorate from the lack of rain and heat. With more failed sorghum fields being reported, the crop was being baled for livestock feed.
