Atascosa AG News
Wet, damp conditions continue in Atascosa County. Fog each morning, followed with misty rain and light scattered showers, has added a green color to the landscape. Lots of winter weeds are growing and providing forage for livestock.
There have been reports of clover poisoning by a handful of cattle producers. Providing a bloat or high magnesium block should help to stop this potentially deadly problem in areas possible corn farmers are attempting to plant.
