A drought plagued summer will cause problems for all farmers this fall. According to farmer, Kevin Flynn, this year’s drought will result in a lower yield, but also higher prices for the corn that made it.

He adds that when it comes to corn; live stock producers and the makers of ethanol will be hurt most by the lower than average yields and higher prices.

Rob Stout raises swine in Washington County and shares that he won’t be making any money on the animals, due to feed being so expensive.
