WASHINGTON COUNTY, Va. - Record breaking rain in July was a huge help to cattle farmers in our region.
News 5 stopped in at the Tri-State Livestock Market Friday, farmers say right now it looks like the number of cattle being sold this fall is relatively normal.
While they say prices could be better, the record rainfall in July also helped with crops, along with the number of cattle being sold so far. "We've been real light for the last 100 days and we're just in our normal marking pattern, no big supplies here," said farmer Steve Elsea.
Farmers also say the drought out west has not made a huge impact in our region.
