Drought and Extreme Heat Resources

These resources are intended to provide information that can help farmers and families cope with the immediate negative consequences of drought and high temperature across Tennessee. The majority of the listed publications have been developed by UT Institute of Agriculture faculty and staff specifically for Tennessee production systems. You will find dates, locations and times listed for statewide producer meetings where drought management techniques will be presented. We have also included links to external educational information and resource to connect hay and feed suppliers to livestock producers searching for feedstuffs. Materials will be continually updated and added as we endure this drought period, so please check back frequently.

Most importantly, you have direct access to The University of Tennessee in every county. Your UT County Extension Agent is available to work with you on situations that are unique to your situation.
