Recent cold weather will lead to smaller crawfish

The deep freeze had an impact on a lot of us this week, but what kind of effect will have it on the upcoming crawfish season? LSU AgCenter crawfish expert, Doctor Robert Romaire, says there will still be plenty of mudbugs to go around, but we may have to wait a little before we see larger sized crawfish.
"The cold weather just simply slows the growth of crawfish, it will not impact the production at all."

At the heart of her message was a phrase that Clinton repeated multiple times during her remarks.“I want you to understand, I will not promise you something I cannot deliver,” Clinton said. “I will not make promises I know I cannot keep.” The pragmatic vow was a subtle dig at her opponent Bernie Sanders, who has campaigned on platforms of free college and universal healthcare. But it also functioned as a reminder to communities like this one – rural, poor, and overwhelmingly African American – that voters here have been burned before. In 1993, Denmark’s local school district was one of...
