Mayfield, Kentucky (WPSD) -- When you think of cattle feed, you probably don't think of stuff you would normally associate with Halloween.

But the long drought is forcing one Kentucky man who raises beef to consider it as an alternative, because corn prices are so high.

Watch the video in the player above to see how he's using candy to feed his herd.

Joseph Watson says he began using the candy after a friend jokingly told him about it earlier this year.

He says he'll continue with the practice, but will also monitor the cost of corn to see if he can go back and use it at some point.
