The recent winter storm has raised havoc for crops and livestock in North Dakota. The heavy snow coupled with continuous rain has created big problems for North Dakota producers.

Dan Rorvig, President of the North Dakota Stockman's Association, says there's no estimate yet on the number of livestock killed but the storm has left many head of cattle wandering the countryside.

Rorvig says the association is hoping for help from neighbors who see cattle that don't belong to their herd.

Rorvig says another big concern will be getting livestock feed for the winter because much of the hay and silage supplies have not been harvested due to wet conditions and are now buried in flooded and snow-covered fields.
