Monday Update on South Dakota Blizzard

Posted on: Oct 07, 2013

The Rapid City Journal is reporting that thousands of cattle may have been killed in the early October snowstorm that struck western South Dakota.  The few ranches that are able to be contacted have reported losses of 20 to 50 percent of their herds in the worst October blizzard in the recorded history of the Black Hills. 

Winds that gusted to 60 mph and that produced gale-force winds drove cattle to shelter in trees, or wherever they could find room out of the wind. Some made it to shelter.  Some didn't.

Many cattle had not been placed on winter pastures, still had their calves by their side, and had not yet produced their winter coats.  Thus, the losses from this storm will be felt over the next two years due to the loss of both cows and their calves. 

Due to the inability of emergency personnel to reach some area ranchers, several more days will be required to determine the extent of the losses and the damage. 

See the full Rapid City Journal story here.

Please continue to follow local media for more information regarding this breaking story.
