Weather worries U.S. cattle producers as they slowly expand herds

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 02/09/2015 - 06:57

Now a combination of record-high cattle prices and cheap grain has prompted ranchers to start adding back cattle earlier than expected. "Every time we think we're coming out of the drought, we get hit again,' said Rackley, a former high school football coach in Texas, where the sport and beef are state passions.

When those ingredients get together you get enough energy for a snow event.” Snowy conditions contributed to nearly 200 flight cancellations in and out of Boston's Logan International Airport on Sunday, according to the FlightStats website that tracks air traffic nationwide.
