A light colored head of battle bellows as it's calf follows along at the Gill Cattle Co. pasture in rural Parker County near Springtown, Texas, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012. Cattle are being bred with genes from their African cousins who are accustomed to hot weather. New corn varieties are emerging with larger roots for gathering water in a drought.
