Newborn calves cared for during North Dakota’s brutal winter weather

Posted: Updated:
NORTH DAKOTA - Farmers in North Dakota are prepared no matter what conditions they face each winter.  As a dangerous blizzard headed their way Monday, they had already taken steps to protect their cattle, especially the newborn calves.

As soon as they are born during winter months the newborns are taken into a warm calving barn to make sure they don't get sick.  The rest of calves and cows have to stay out in the cold. 

Livestock producers say the wind is more of a concern than anything.  They plant trees and install things like wind-break fences to help shield the cattle during the winter season.
