Weather difficult for Arkansas cattle producers
High Plains Journal
The ups and downs of late winter and spring-like weather have made things difficult for Arkansas beef cattle producers.
“The weather the last month or two has been unpredictable,” said Dr. Tom Troxel, professor/associate animal science department head for the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service. “In any given week, many parts of the state have experienced daytime highs in the upper 60s with bright sunshiny days followed by a drop in temperatures to the 40s with a cold rain or snow.”
