So sorry to hear about all the problems in Michigan. I have an Internet friend who lives in that state, but I don't think she's as aware of the farmer situation as you are.
I know here in Texas (and other southern states, too) we have been hit hard by the drought. We were on the verge of running out of water last year, but thankfully, we got about 8 inches of rain in one weekend, which filled up the water sources some. They're going down again fast, though, and it's been a dry dry spring (no moisture here since January). It's not looking good for this summer!
Lots of people are selling cattle and some are selling out completely. It's very sad to see!
