Indiana farms in poor to very poor condition
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Indiana's $8 billion corn and soy bean crop is dying for water.
A recently released USDA report shows that more than two-thirds of the corn crop is in poor to very poor condition.
More than half of the soy beans are in the same condition.
And unless there's a big turn around, it'll cost farmers more to raise live-stock.
A dairy cow eats about 100 pounds of feed every day.
Farmers are more than a little worried.
"It's as bad as I've ever seen it as far as the dryness we've had," Merrill Kelsay, a dairy farmer said. "We've survived this far. I hope we can. We may have to do some adjustments."
Some farmers are cutting their losses -- plowing their corn fields -- so it can still be used for feed.
Others are gambling on rain.
Most Indiana farms are covered by crop insurance, but it doesn't cover all the losses.
