Weather Preventing Hay Harvest

Weather Preventing Hay Harvest

Jackson County Cattlemen Mack Glass and Jeff Pittman shared their frustration of the weather this year with News Reporter, Bergen Baucom, WJHG Channel 7 Panama City.  In the early growing season limited rainfall reduced grass growth.  In July, almost daily rains have prevented hay harvest.  Because the hay is getting more mature with each passing day, the quality of this first cutting will also be affected.
