Drought effects


Randy Bolf, a fence contractor and rancher, feeds one of his cattle a small portion of alfalfa and grass mix he had on the back of his four-wheel all-terrain vehicle, near San Angelo, Texas. Bolf, who was working on a nearby pump fed tank when the cattle walked up to him said he has never hand fed his cattle before, "they are not my pets" Bolf said. But with little to eat on the 7,000 acre ranch that he has been leasing for 22-years the cattle now mostly stay near the watering holes he maintains on the property. As a result, the cows interact with him more than ever before. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)
