LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The lack of rain is hitting local farmers where it hurts -- their livestock.
Many of them are spending the week at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville for the 2012 National Junior Angus Show. Young farmers show their cattle and compete to win awards and scholarships.
Some farmers say the drought is making even the most simple tasks difficult. Jason Jasper says, "Corn prices are going up, of course. We feed corn to the cattle and then our hay prices are already going up so we have to purchase hay and we're not getting our second cutting of our hay because it's so dry. But yeah, it's putting a burden on us just to take care of our livestock."
The National Junior Angus Show runs through Saturday.
