Once again the stock is fed and no cows are calving and needful of assistance. Probably 10 to 12 inches more snow. That makes over 3 feet in the last two weeks and all the dams were full and the creeks were running when this cycle started. I am sure there are a lot of tired ranchers and their families from trying to save newborns and get all the feeding done in this last blow. It is April and we are in calving season in South Dakota. Life goes on.
With all this wonderful moisture you’d think we would be assured of a great year. Strangely -or not- we could still have a dry year and a drought. South Dakota. The land of infinite variety, indeed.
