Subject: Update on washingtons Dairy blizard disaster


Tablerock Ranch eastern Wa
Reports we have got today are that at least 1200 dairy cattle have been lost, sounds like in some cases employees were drifted out and could not get to dairies to work many roads drifted in as seen in pics from post below. We were told in some cases cattle crowded gates at there scheduled milking time and trampling deaths occurred as they waited, keep in mind these are large dairies out here with many 6k or more being milked and take dozens of men to operate . Sounds like with the high winds and blinding snow the cattle just piled up on each other. A true heartbreak for the Dairy industry out here and our friends and neighbors.
edit to say this was second hand details aren't clear yet.
