SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) -

A meeting to deal with the drought is scheduled for next month in Scottsboro.

The topic will be how farmers can make sure their cattle is fed. The extension system coordinator says farmers are not able to pasture-feed their cattle during droughts and must use hay. That causes problems later.

“Down the road there could be some shortages for hay. The cost where they would normally have to supplement is going to increase because normally they would have been grazing this time of year,” said Jackson County extension system coordinator Themika Sims.

That meeting is set for Nov. 1 and will be held at Scottsboro High School.
