(BINGHAMTON, N.Y.) -- This summer heat and dry weather has negatively affected New York’s dairy industry, according to Press & Sun Bulletin.
The lack of rain and heat have damaged crops that farmers use to feed cows, and the hot weather makes cows eat less and causes them to produce less milk.
Dairy experts believe that production could be off from 3 percent to 15 percent this year.
The lack of production will cause an increase in prices for cheese and milk.
