Arkansas Producers Brace Crops, Livestock and Themselves for More Intense Heat

The U.S. Drought Monitor releases maps tracking drought every Tuesday.

Parts of Arkansas experienced rain this past week but most of the state remains in some form of drought. Many farmers are making decisions to care for animals and crops, while keeping their farm afloat. The University of Arkansas’ Extension held a webinar to prepare producers for what is happening and how they could be profitable when the dry spell eventually breaks.
