Managing Drifting Snow
Managing Blizzards for Water

Water for Animals
All trails meet at the water holes, and on the high plains, those trails get long between water. Water sources are the key to making good use of pastures. Wells and windmills, pumps and power lines, we put lots of dollars into water for animals.

Blizzards, those wide, hard-water rivers, can add water to pit reservoirs if there's lots of blowing snow. Once again, the trick is to balance the size of the pit (number of animals) with the annual transport of drifting snow.
