“The first frost came a little early in 2019, but it was welcomed by hunters and gardeners. Producers who established cool season forages also welcome the cooler weather. Others, with good hay crops, will have little problem providing for their stock. The cooler weather will slow down parasites and other pests which should improve the herd health issues for the county,” said Glenda Sutherlin, Union County Extension agent.
