Start Date: 8/7/2018 -  
Pasture and rangeland conditions in East Texas were poor to very poor in most parts of the district. In Cherokee County, producers moved livestock due to dry ponds and creeks. Producers in Gregg and Marion counties were feeding hay, and hay was scarce in the district. Producers were culling cattle in Cherokee and Gregg counties.
