As temperatures this week head into the triple digit range, pastures in the state are suffering. University of Kentucky Extension Forage Specialist, Dr. Garry Lacefield, says farmers are faced with a tough situation.

The National Weather Service says heat will build across Kentucky this week, climaxing in triple-digit readings on Friday. Meteorologists say temperature readings that day could reach 103 degrees in Owensboro. The forecast is leading to more worries for farmers.
