The recent wet weather in Texoma has local ranchers hoping for a better year than 2011, One of the worst ever for producers. Last year's drought forced many ranchers to sell off much of their
herds, but now the weather and cattle prices are breeding a little bit
of cautious optimism among ranchers.
Texoma cattlemen gathered at the MPEC today for the annual Cattle Trails Cow/Calf Conference.
After a disastrous year because of the drought,weather was one of the main topics...
And what KFDX Meterologist Bryan Rupp told them in his
long-range weather trend presentation wasn't too encouraging.....
Katie Crosbie joins us now with more.
Gwyn, the cattlemen we talked to say Bryan's forecast for continued
drought makes them uneasy. They say this is one time they hope the
weather man is wrong!
But they also said the rain Texoma received in the fall helped ease some of the strain.
