Sev- eral streels in the west end of the town were closed be- cause of heavy drifts. Most Cardslon residents say they have never seen so much snow, Hull Pholo Livestock men welcome change B.y DELIA WOOLF Herald News Service RAYMOND Livestock men welcomed weather giymg change in relief lo an- imals from the bitter cold and the heavy winds which have ac- compjnied most of the storms. Stockmen report their winter feed supply is diminishing at a faster rate than they like fo see for the month of February with still a long lime ahead for win- ter feeding. In most herds the heifers and cows in calf are being fed heavy rations in order to keep the animal in good condition for the spring calving season just ahead. A number of herds have been effertec! witli the disease I.B.R. known in slock circles as "Red nose." The disease when it gets Into Ihc herd spreads fast lie- fore it is detected. In the breeding slock it causes the animal to abort her calf. For an animal in calf it seems very little can be done until aflcr the damage is done; Hie animal is treated fcr the disease previously to the breed- ing season. In the mean time this year's calf has lieen lost which is costly to the producer.

The riders cover the herds daily in order lo cheek each animal and when Hie need ranch is coming through the winter in good form with no lieavy loss of flesh so far. He, like all other livestock men, has hopes of having passed the most serious portion of the winter. Mr. Jensen says there is slill a good supply of feed at the ranch and he sees no great concern regarding feed. The foreman reports there has been very little sickness in any of the ranch animals which wenl into the winter in good condi- tion. Cattle in the feedyards have been slow to put on flesh as they do not feed well during ex- treme cold weather. The high winds of the past weeks have blown the ice crys- tals into the animal fur whjch makes the animal have a tend- ency lo slantl with back towards the wind and take what nature has to offer.
