(Neb.)-Feedlot Worker Clears Path To Cattle As Snow Falls

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 02/21/2013 09:03 AM
     HOLDREGE, Neb. (AP) - Snowstorm or not, growing cattle must be fed.
     Thirty-seven-year-old Jesse Landin is the feedlot manager at McClymont Feedyard, which sits about three miles southwest of Holdrege in south-central Nebraska.
     Landin said early Thursday morning that he was on a tractor moving snow out of the feed alleys. He says a path has to be cleared so trucks can get through to put down feed for the 11,000 head of cattle.
     Landin says about 7 inches have accumulated so far and that the snow is still falling.
     Landin isn't concerned about the cattle, which remain outside in the snow, light winds and 20-degree temperature.
     He says, "They can handle it. They've got good winter hair coats."
