In this Aug. 25, 2011 photo, Don Davis is seen with some of his heard on a parched meadow at his ranch, near Tarpley, Texas. This year's severe drought in Texas and the southern Plains has crippled hay production, so ranchers and feedlot owners have been scrambling to find food for their cattle _ sometimes shipping hay in from several states away.
