CLEVELAND, Wis. (AP) - Soaring temperatures in Wisconsin and other Midwestern states are renewing concerns about a drought and the impact it may have on crops.
Farmers here have been waiting weeks for rain, but the relatively little that fell last week wasn't enough to help their crops or pastures.
Grazing usually provides about half of the food for 550 dairy cows at Saxon Homestead Farm in Cleveland. This year, the pastures are providing only about one-third of what's needed. Farmer Karl Klessig says they've already dipped into a winter food supply that they usually don't touch until October or November.
Klessig says that as he looks to sell animals to reduce the demand for food, he might sell some female calves for the first time.
