"Economics is the biggest driver of farmers leaving to go out of state," Oosten said. "Milk pricing tends to be very competitive in other states; the feed prices are lower and the regulatory environment is better." Real estate, in particular, has played a significant role in more dairies choosing to leave California, he said.

Lots of farmers and ranchers are going to have to come to terms with the fact that maybe deserts really aren't the best places for massive water wasting farms or to raise thirsty livestock. Just because someone built a farm there 150 years ago doesn't mean it was sustainable, especially not at a modern industrial scale.

Hay Prices Continue to Rise
Drought Forces Livestock Producers to Make Hard Decisions for Winter

...For Casey Cooksley, who farms and raises cattle near Broken Bow, Nebraska, the impact of heat and dryness on forage this summer is evident around him.

He knows people in his area of central Nebraska who have half the forage production of last year because of drought. In his own operation, some of his alfalfa is irrigated, but even then, less production is expected with the extremely dry conditions.

Cooksley and other cattle producers are making some tough decisions since depending on their cow herd size, some producers might not have enough hay. Cooksley said many cattle producers will use alternative sources for protein this winter. Many chopped silage early just to get something of value out of their drought-damaged crop.

"A lot of what was chopped for silage didn't have much for corn in it, as it was dryland and burning up fairly quickly in the 100-degree temperatures," ...

That's not true. But cow proximity does give voters +7 hit points.

Luckily we didn't have internet trolls back during the dust bowl migration of the 1930's.

That would've been a calamity for Boazo.
