With the warm weather comes this twitch in one select group of people... It can only be recognizable in farmers.
Hay donated by a Lisbon, Ohio, family is making its way to drought-ravaged Texas.

It may be common sense, but farmers also need to remember the dangers of high heat and the proper ways to be prepared.
