SD Rancher Says Cattle OK With Feed, Shelter

SD Rancher Says Cattle OK With Feed, Shelter
PIERRE, SD -

A South Dakota rancher says cattle should make it through the frigid weather of the next few days if they have feed and shelter.

Bob Fortune, of Belvidere, spent Saturday hauling hay and other feed to his cattle to prepare them for a wind chill expected to reach 50 to 60 degrees below zero by Sunday night.

An early October blizzard killed at least 20,000 cattle in western South Dakota, but the cattle were weakened by cold rain that fell before the snow. Fortune says cattle are better prepared to handle the current weather because they have grown their winter hair and little moisture is expected.

Fortune says ranchers also can deal with winter weather better than in decades past because they work in tractors with heated cabs.
