Nationwide Hay Shortage Hits Northern Michigan

Posted: Updated:

Farmers and animal owners are concerned about a nationwide hay shortage.

The shortage is hitting home now.

Northern Michigan farmers and those who have to feed their animals are feeling the effects.

Hay crop production at Boyne Valley Farm in Boyne City is down and they're blaming it on this year's wild weather. It has destroyed or damaged many crops including hay.

Northern Michigan hay farmers say drought conditions affected not only them, but farmers as far south as Texas.
