LOCAL AND AREA CROP AND CATTLE REPORT – NOV. 5, 2019

///
Comments are Off

A cold front made its way across the state last week bringing with it rain and significantly cooler temperatures. Many areas reported their first hard freeze of the season and a few isolated snowflakes were reported. Farmers along the Tennessee River reported damage to unharvested crops from the strong storms that went through on Saturday, October 26. Pasture conditions showed signs of improvement after the rains and livestock producers reported that their ponds were filling back up, alleviating the need to haul water to their herds. There were 2.6 days suitable for field work. Topsoil moisture was rated 3 percent very short, 10 percent short, 64 percent adequate, and 23 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture was rated 4 percent very short, 16 percent short, 68 percent adequate, and 12 percent surplus.
