Warm Weather Making Work Difficult for Farmers, Loggers

Posted: Updated:

It's the middle of winter but most of us dressed like it were spring Tuesday.

But changes in the weather can make work more difficult for farmers and loggers.

The temperatures have thawed what once was frozen, including mud.

"This time of year you're not getting a lot if any plant growth. Any kind of movement on the soil will damage what cover is there unless it is frozen so you end up with much more muddy conditions with this kind of weather," said agricultural agent Larry Campbell.

Campbell said more mud can lead to parasites and disease in animals.

He said it also makes it difficult for farmers and loggers to move equipment.
