Cattle producer prepares for bitter cold weather
A southwest Iowa cattle producer says he’s bracing for a cold snap next week.
“It seems like you can never be prepared for the sub-zero temperatures,” said Duane Aistrope.
The Fremont County farmer tells Brownfield he will take additional steps to help keep his 80-head of cattle healthy.
“We’ll make sure the cattle have plenty of fresh water, which is a challenge keeping them all open and freeze-free,” Aistrope said. “Then we actually increase the intake of feed consumption a little bit.”
Aistrope says having extra bedding will be another priority.
