Meade County Rancher Saves 210 Head Of Neighbor’s Cattle

Meade County South Dakota rancher Bob Hanson was able to save 210 cattle that drifted into his yard from the October Blizzard.  He says they ended up near his general store in Howes and he was able to feed them and get them back to their grateful owners.

Hanson says he also helped collect some dead cattle carcasses and disposed of them.

He says the storm brought rain first, then heavy snow and gusty winds.  He says some of his neighbor’s cattle got trapped while others drowned.

Hanson who also has his own cattle didn’t lose any of them to the storm.
