By BILLY CARTERBURN and MARK KARLINAssociated PressAssociated PressIt’s the time of year when cow and calf farmers are looking for a big boost.
That’s because they’re going through a drought.
It’s also the time when cattle are in demand in many markets, where they’re being sold to consumers and to the slaughterhouses.
Cattle have become a major crop for farmers and the number of animals sold in the U.S. has doubled in the last decade.
In the past, dairy farmers were able to keep a steady supply of their stock.
But over the past decade, the demand for dairy products has been steadily rising.
And this year, the drought in the Midwest and the drought that began in California have made it even more difficult for dairy farmers to get the products they need to keep their herds healthy.
For years, it’s been a challenge for farmers to find products to sell to consumers that were as affordable as dairy products.
In fact, many dairy products that were sold as a by-product or in a byproduct packaging are now more expensive than milk, butter and eggs, according to the U,S.
Dairy Export Council.
Cows can live up to 80 years, and they can grow up to 8 feet tall.
They’re also the largest animals in the dairy industry.
But this year they’ve been hit hard by the drought, which has left a huge shortage of feed for dairy cattle and other livestock.
Cultivators say the problem is not the cows, but the demand.
And they’re worried that the supply of milk and other products will be severely impacted as demand for these products continues to rise.
So far this year there have been more than 400 reports of cattle being sick, according a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
It shows that the disease is spreading.
“It’s like a virus,” said Mike Johnson, the president of Johnson Animal Health in South Dakota.
“We’ve got to do everything we can to stop it from getting to the animals.”
Dairy farmers have had to buy much higher-priced feed to feed their cows.
Some farmers are also finding that they can’t make enough hay for their cattle, even though they can afford to buy it.
And the demand from consumers for products like milk, cheese and butter is growing.
The American Dairy Products Association said in February that consumers bought more than $1.4 billion worth of dairy products in the first nine months of the year.
That has led to some shortages of those products.
Some consumers are finding that the cost of products like beef and pork are not worth it.
In Minnesota, where dairy prices have gone up by more than 50 percent in the past five years, the state is also seeing a shortage of dairy.
The state’s Department of Agriculture says it has been unable to buy enough milk and butter to keep the herds healthy during this time of drought.
But farmers are finding it difficult to find the milk they need because of the drought.
“I can’t buy the milk.
I don’t know what I can do,” said Jim Gresko, who sells organic dairy products on the West River farm near Rochester, Minn.
Gresko says the shortage of milk is also hurting his business, and it has forced him to move some of his herd of about 50 cows to other states.
He said he’s had to close the farm because of supply shortages.
“I don’t think the farmers are happy,” Greskos said.
He said he plans to sell his herd at a discount and hire another farmer to help out.
The USDA said in a statement that it is “continuing to closely monitor the situation” and “is working with state, local and national agronomists to address the problem.”
But the dairy farmers and processors are not alone.
The National Milk Producers Federation said that in the same month it reported the shortages, it also had reports of a shortage in beef and dairy products and a shortage that affected products from dairy products to beef.
And in the fourth quarter of last year, it said, it saw a sharp increase in cases of salmonella.
In a statement, the National Milk Council said that it has made several improvements to its supply and has more than doubled its production capacity.
The agency said it will continue to monitor the condition of dairy farms and provide guidance to farmers on the best practices they can use to make the most of the water available and the time available to produce products.
