Cattle are dying and farmers are going bankrupt as a severe drought continues in northeastern Brazil....

Brazil's northeast interior has been experiencing a severe drought in what should be the rainy season. 

"What falls from the sky does not fill a glass of water," Raimundo, a farmer, said. Natural vegetation, which would normally provide food for livestock, has dried up and many ranchers cannot afford to buy imported feed for their herds. Many farmers are on the brink of collapse, while others have given up on ranching and have moved to other parts of the country in search of work.
