Hundreds of Cows Killed or Still Lost Southeast Colorado Blizzard

A rare spring blizzard slammed extreme western Kansas, southeast Colorado and the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma April 29-30.

In some places the snow was measured in feet and winds up to 60 mph left drifts that were reported to be at least 10 feet high. 

Now ranchers across the area are busy searching for hundreds of missing cattle that either died during the storm or survived but are now lost. In just Baca County, Colorado, officials are estimating some 400 cows died in the storm.

Facebook pages has been established for missing cattle, like this one for Baca County.  Posts include pictures of cattle found roaming in open fields.
