Texas is in the middle of the worst drought on record in the state's history. Farm crops have been hit hard, and valuable grazing land has dried out, leading to heavy losses in the state’s valuable cattle industry. In total, Texas has suffered more than $5 billion in agricultural losses since the drought began.

Pete Bonds is a cattle rancher from Ft. Worth, Texas. The Takeaway has spoke with Bonds about the drought twice in the last year, and gets an update about what he and other cattle ranchers are doing as winter approaches.
