Derrell Peel Says Drought Worries Mount as Spring Arrives in the Southern Plains

Wed, 16 Mar 2022 07:32:07 CDT

Derrell Peel Says Drought Worries Mount as Spring Arrives in the Southern Plains Oklahoma and neighboring states continue to struggle with drought conditions as we transition from winter to spring- and Oklahoma State Univesrity Extension Livestock Market Economist Dr. Derrell Peel is worried. He says that after last year's drought that hit northern states like the Dakotas and Montana as well as the Pacific northwest- the rise of drought conditions this past fall and through the winter in the southern plains is a major problem for beef cattle producers.


Peel says "that's the worst possible drought scenario- a springtime drought- you just don't get any forage production potentially, And if that happens, the consequences get very severe very quickly as when you move from April, May, June and that early growth period- that's a really critical forage time- if we lose that, then we are really behind the eight ball probably for much of the year."


Peel believes that the liquidation of the beef cow herd that we saw in parts of the US in 2021 will accelerate in 2022 if the drought remains in major parts of cattle country. He adds that even if we should get much needed rains in amounts significant enough to push back drought- the beef heifer numbers are not adequate to do much more than just maintain beef cow numbers across the US in 2022.
