One billion dollars. That's how much money Texas cattle ranchers have lost because of the drought.
Ranchers have spent substantial money on hay and supplemental feed.
The drought losses also include failed wheat crops usually used for grazing.
The entire state is in some stage of drought for the second straight week, but the rain is expected to help.
