Dakotas, cattle ranchers who lost thousands of animals in an October blizzard were bracing for the latest wintry weather, with wind chills of 40 degrees below zero expected by week’s end.

Cattle should be able to withstand the harsh conditions better than they did the Oct. 4 blizzard, said Julie Ellingson, executive vice president of the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association.

“Cattle are a hardy species; they can endure a lot,” she said. “With that October storm, they didn’t have their winter hair coat yet. They’ve acquired some of that extra hair that will help insulate them better.”
