North Dakota cattle losses - 91,000 so far - rival those of ’97

In 1997, 91,458 adult cattle and calves were reported killed in spring blizzards and flooding. So far this spring, 91,000 cattle – 19,000 adult cattle and 72,000 calves - have died, according to an estimate by the USDA and the North Dakota State University Extension Service. Ranchers blame months of bad weather.
