South Dakota State Vet Says Some Health Issues In Storm Surviving Cattle

Western South Dakota ranchers are continuing their recovery efforts from the early October blizzard. Some are still working on removing dead carcasses from their private property while others are dealing with health issues in their cattle caused by the storm. South Dakota State Veterinarian Dr. Dustin Odekoven says some cattle that initially survived the storm have died due to stress.

Oedekoven says some producers are dealing with respiratory and pneumonia disease issues in their surviving cattle.

He says while there are thousands of cattle and sheep that have perished from the storm, the Dakota Territorial Bison Association reported to him that all of their animals survived the blizzard.
