(KCEN)- Texas farmers are breathing a small sigh of relief after recent rains across the state.
The Agricultural Industry took a big hit during last year's devastating drought.
Farmers here in Central Texas said, although the rainfall to date looks good on paper, they're not out of the clear.
"Trouble is in March, we had two and a half the average rainfall and we couldn't keep that, and it all went down the river. Now, we're actually behind on the amount of useful water," said Little River-Academy Hay Farmer, Bill Wilson.
The price of hay rose to $75 to $100 a bail last year in some places.
This season, you can find a small square bail of hay on TDA'S Hay Hotline For an average of $10 to $20 a bail.
