Wyoming Winter-Livestock
Hard winter challenges Wyoming livestock producers
The Associated Press - March 27, 2017

POWELL, Wyo. - The snowy, cold winter caused challenges for some Wyoming livestock producers.

Regan Smith, who raises sheep, cattle and crops northeast of Powell, says it was a constant struggle to make sure sheep and cattle were protected from the worst of the weather.

Smith tells the Powell Tribune  that the winter was costly in terms of extra labor, extra feed and extra energy.

Some producers scrambled to find hay after snow blanketed winter pastures and prevent cattle from reaching the grass.
