Other hay cut was 69 percent, 26 days ahead of 2011, and 29 days ahead of normal. There have been some reports of reduced hay yields due to lack of moisture. Pasture condition continued to decline to 15 percent very poor, 20 percent poor, 37 percent fair, 25 percent good, and 3 percent excellent.

Stock water supplies were 6 percent very short, 20 percent short, 71 percent adequate, and 3 percent excellent.
