Louisiana Field Reports: Conditions Good for Harvest, Tough on People, Animals

“Last week was dry. Lots of hay pastures were baled. Lots of fieldwork done. Farmers were able to cut rice without interruption from showers. The area could use a good shower for pastures and hay fields.” “Dry conditions allowed good field progress. Cane planting was in full swing as growers work to finish planting before the start of grinding next week. Hay producers were baling hay. Cattle producers were weaning and marketing calves. Fall garden planting was in full swing.”
