Worries about our lack of rain aren't putting a damper on one Valley fair, but the drought is on the minds of many in the agriculture community.
The Vermillion County Fair is in full swing at Cayuga Park. Food, rides and livestock shows are available for those looking to brave the summer heat.
Despite the festivities, dry conditions have agriculture professionals concerned.
"The pastures are really getting poor. The price of hay is going to go up. the bushels per acre on corn is likely to go down," says Phil Cox, Purdue Extension Agriculture and Natural Resources Education. "With the upcoming heat coming on Thursday and Friday, that's really going to add to it."
Regardless of drought concerns, Cox says there have been great livestock showings at the fair.
The Vermillion County Fair concludes Friday.
