Livestock producers braved the blizzard to care for and protect their animals. North Dakota Livestock Alliance Executive Director Amber Boeshans says providing feed and shelter is top of mind during winter storms. Regardless of the weather, calves are also born and cows must be milked. “If the milk truck isn’t able to arrive at the dairy, previous milk is still in the bulk tank and unfortunately has to get dumped,” explains Boeshans.” Pig farmers are also took extra steps to ensure barns stay warm and functioning. “They have a generator fueled and ready to go. Also, employees are stayed overnight in the barns in fear of not making it back the next day,” says Boeshans. “I have true admiration for the farmers and ranchers out there who braved, yet, another storm.” Listen to the story.
