It’s dry across the Southeast and conditions are getting worse in many parts of Alabama. The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association (ACA) Executive Vice President, Erin Beasley, told Southeast AgNet’s Randall Weiseman they are looking at all aspects of this drought.
According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, the lack of rain has led to worsening drought conditions in Alabama. Extreme drought conditions are being noted in the southwest part of the state in Mobile, Baldwin, Washington, Clarke, Monroe, Conecuh and Escambia counties. North Alabama is either moderately dry or extremely dry, with the worst conditions in parts of Lauderdale, Colbert and Franklin counties in Northwest Alabama and parts of Jackson, Dekalb, Cherokee, Marshall, Madison and Morgan counties in Northeast Alabama.
