Weekend Snow Storm Causes Massive Cattle Death Losses

Weekend Snow Storm Causes Massive Cattle Death Losses

This weekend’s storm that brought heavy snow and strong winds to Western South Dakota has caused massive cattle death losses.  South Dakota Stock grower’s Executive Director Silvia Christen says some producers lost at least half of their cattle herds.

Christen says the early storm caught many cattle unprepared to deal with the conditions.

Christen says many of the cattle got covered in snow when they drifted into shelter belts and fences.

She says the death losses are likely to rise as they clear away snow and continue to investigate.
