Florida and Georgia cattle hit by Irma

Hurricane Irma raced through Florida and Georgia cattle country. The beef cattle industry appears to be less impacted than the dairies, which are running on generators. Most fences remained intact to keep beef cattle from moving onto roads. A spokesman for the Florida Cattlemen’s Association reports that he has not heard of the widespread loss of cattle as farmers and ranchers wait for the waters to recede.
