Million Dollar Loss: Brazilian cold snap leads to more than 1,500 dead cattle

More than 1,500 cattle are dead after a massive temperature drop in Brazil.

In rural areas, temperatures dropped into the 40s. The average this time of year ranches from high 50s to near 70 degrees. An animal expert says that Brazilian cattle are more adaptable to unexpectedly high temperatures than cold spells, so they are more susceptible to hypothermia.

It is estimated as a $1 million dollar loss to farmers in the country. Reports say that the dead cattle were not fit for sale.
