By Yelena Serrato/The Hesperian-Beacon—
SOUTH PLAINS—Local farmers have already began planting their sets of cotton, milo, corn and other yearly crops that keep our communities and most importantly, America running.
Farmers are currently plowing their way through these times of uncertainty as they prepare for stripping season this fall.
Baby sets of cotton are already being spotted throughout the south plains and it won’t be long till the cotton grows waist length, making for a beautiful green filled summer.
However, for many farmers like Arnaldo Serrato, prepping season comes with its sets of difficulties, thanks to hogs who feed off of crops. Wild hogs dig up the seeds that are planted in the fields which result in large patches of constant digging from hogs seeking fresh feed.
Farmers go through their own sets of challenges to feed and supply America that many are not aware of but still find a way to overcome these setbacks.
We appreciate all the hard work of our local farmers as we all continue to move forward from these difficult times.
