Nebraska Cattle Death Losses Approach 3,000

Nebraska Cattle Death Losses Approach 3,000

Cattle producers in the three most northwestern counties of Nebraska are digging out from the early October blizzard that caused cattle death losses in the thousands.  Nebraska Cattlemen Association’s Vice President of Member Services Melody Benjamin says while it’s difficult to get a solid total number, the estimates are quite high.

Benjamin says producers need to record and verify their losses so they can be eligible for assistance later on.

Benjamin says they’re working with Lt. Governor Lavonne Heidemann and the State’s Congressional delegation to see what help may be available. She says there’s also a relief fund that’s been established through the Chadron Community Foundation.
