Extremely dry conditions have scorched pastures in South Texas, according to Terry Lockamy, Cameron County extension agent. "Dryland pastures are not experiencing any growth at this point, but irrigated pastures are still being cut,” Lockamy said Southwest Texas also reported hot, dry weather with temperatures up to IOO degrees. Pastures in Southwest Texas are suffering from hot southerly winds, according to extension range specialist Robert Lyons of Uvalde. Lyons said forage availability is still slightly above average for this time of year, but the quality is beginning to drop without rainfall. ‘‘Unless we receive above average rainfall in September, standing forage availability this fall and winter will drop significantly and it may be difficult to winter livestock after this dry, hot summer,” Lyons said According to extension director Galen Chandler of Vernon, rains have helped soil moisture and range conditions in the Rolling Plains. He said warm season tall grass species such as little bluestem and switchgrass have begun to develop rapidly, improving forage in many counties. In East Texas, all counties received abundant rain, according to extension director Tony Douglas of Overton. He said the region has an excellent supply of hay and producers are making the third cut. Extension forage specialist David Bade of College Station said Southeast Texas received ample rain recently. Chamber of Commerce developed this program in 1993 and has graduated five classes for a total of 108 alumni.
