Winters at the Ranch | Destination

In the past, the winter season has proven difficult for farmers and ranchers in Sheridan County due to the harsh weather conditions that come with it – snow, freezing temperatures and limited hours of sunshine.

Now, what people may believe that makes winters tough for local ranchers doesn’t affect them as much. Instead, lack of moisture and inflated feed prices cause more problems, threatening the livelihoods of those who choose the laborious occupation.
