We are looking at 3 digit temps starting this weekend with no rain until maybe Monday or Tuesday. Daniel maybe with the High moving this way it will allow the temp in your area to drop and maybe get some rain. At least I hope so.

Boy, I'm praying for some rain and temp relief for you Daniel, I know how important a good corn silage crop means to a dairy farmer.

I know many of you have temps hotter than this, but we're not accustomed to that much super hot weather here in Ky, so it gets uncomfortable fast. Our cows have a very hard time with it even with 6 large fans & water sprinklers.

The nearest weather station is about 50 miles from here & they have 102F. We're right in some kind of hot pocket. This mornign we were 7 degrees warmer than Louisville and usually they are warmer than here due to the city's concrete, etc.

Hope you get relief soon Daniel. Same boat here, (with the heat at least) 6 " short rainfall for June and statewide burn ban in force now. The county closed down all fireworks stands as FW aren't permitted in the drought. The cattle auctions are picking up with folks selling off their herds.
Fortunately, my shop is usually 10-15 degrees cooler than outdoors with trees and a 4-ft wall fan.

Daniel, please be careful. That kind of heat can be ornery, let alone working in it.

Lots of fluids my friend, lots of fluids.

Just came in from the shop and showered off, 104 this afternoon, 85 now....seems likes lots of the country that normally doesn't see these temps are hurting with it. My springs are such that I'm supplementing the herd with city water and they are right in it. Usually they let it set and De-chlorinate over night, but this last week they stick their heads right in under the fill hose and guzzle. I have just a small grass/hay cow/calf operation so water isn't quite as critical as for Daniel's dairy operation, but dry is dry ! Everybody keep safe with the fluids, was at the dentist this afternoon and he was telling me about two locals fellas down with heat exhaustion yesterday and another today both putting up hay, which is what everybody around here is doing this week.
