Texas Agriculture Hit Hard By Winter Storm


From dairy to chickens and citrus, Texas agriculture is taking a big hit from the winter storms. State Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller says animals are freezing to death and there's no gas to power farm equipment. Miller says they're dumping eight-million-dollars worth of milk every day because they can't pasteurize it. Because milk is considered a hazard, farmers are having to pay to dispose of it. And they have no fuel for the feed mills, so Miller says he has workers out looking for food for the livestock so they don't starve to death.
