Livestock Emergency Management
Just last week, we observed Iowa Severe Weather Awareness Week, with the Minnesota Severe Weather Awareness Week coming up April 11-15th. This is an important time to review and re-educate you and your loved ones about the seasonal threats from severe weather and how to avoid them. It's also a perfect time to create and practice your emergency plan, or run through a refresher.
It's also important to know what to do with your livestock in the case of severe weather. Join in this Thursday as Joyce outlines general good tips and tricks for dealing with livestock during hazardous situations, and of course, remember that the situation may vary based on your production level.
NOTE: Next week we will observe two state-wide tornado drills. These drills are scheduled for Thursday, April 14, 2016 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m.
