WORTHINGTON — A rural Worthington man is facing 32 misdemeanor counts of animal mistreatment after a Nobles County deputy responded to a call of sheep in the ditch and found carcasses, skulls and underweight sheep.
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.
Bringing sheep producers together to interact with each other and learn about a variety of topics is the goal for the upcoming shepherd’s clinic.
The clinic is a spin-off of events which used to be held in Hettinger every year, said Chris Schauer, Hettinger Research Extension Center director.
