“From summer to winter, the transition has been swift. Much cooler temperatures have descended on southern Arkansas. An early hard freeze and continued cooler temperatures has swiftly sent the trees into winter dormancy. Some producers got their winter forages started. Livestock are in good shape with most producers confident they have enough hay depending on how hard and cold the winter will be,” said Glenda Sutherlin, Union County Extension agent.
