Dry weather may affect beef supplies

Ranchers say demand for beef is strong, but because of the dry weather, they may not be able to have enough supply.

They say unless California gets plenty of rain this month, the feed available for cattle will quickly decrease.

Ranchers usually move cattle from winter pastures to summer pastures at the end of March or April. But they say they're moving them early because of the dry spell -- costing them more money to buy or rent additional land.
