North Dakota Farm Bureau on preparing for the widespread arctic outbreak set to hit the northern plains

Farmers across the northern plains brace for a widespread arctic outbreak, set to bring some of winter’s coldest temperatures yet. With peak cold scheduled for this weekend, preparation continues to protect livestock.

Daryl Lease, the President of the North Dakota Farm Bureau, speaks with RFD-TV’s own Janet Adkison on what to expect heading into the weekend, the risk it poses to livestock, and other ag implications.

“A lot of it is making sure you have shelters in place... fresh bedding that they can lay in, and then a lot of producers will up the quality of the feed, the hay that they are feeding at times when it gets cold like this to provide more energy. A little more protein and a little more capability for them cattle to stay warm,” Lease states.
