Winter Storm Update...As you are aware the ranch experienced severe winter weather over the last week. We have been feeding large quantities of free choice 20 percent protein since the beginning of the year. Our deer and exotic herd were in great shape prior to the first ice storm, and then the 2 back to back snow storms. During these 3 winter storms, we supplemented approximately 50 bales of alfalfa and were breaking ice in water troughs throughout the ranch. There were 6 consecutive days where the weather did not get above freezing. One morning we experienced below zero actual air temperatures.

I am happy to report based on our visual observations yesterday that we did not find any animals that died because of the storms. We feel very blessed, many neighboring ranchers experienced losses. Those of you that have checked in, we thank you for your concern. We did everything we could during these dangerous conditions to help the animals survive.  #matternranches  #m5
