Summer is Here…More or Less Derrell S. Peel, Oklahoma State University Extension Livestock Marketing Specialist — The calendar says it is summer but it really isn’t acting like it in some places and in some respects.

The long days help but hay production here in the short summer season is off to a slow start with unsettled weather not allowing time for hay to be harvested without moisture damage. Back in Oklahoma, most of the state did not see the first 90 degree day until June 20…later than usual.
