When it gets cold like that do you notice a considerable increase in their feed consumption?

Not much increase yet, hasn't been real cold yet, a few mornings around -25 C. When it gets down to 40 below and colder they start going through it.

Pretty scene there, and nice looking cattle, but I'm not looking forward to that kind of weather here.

We have only had two snows so far here. Both were gone by the afternoon. The hills to the north have been white for a couple of weeks. Working on that corral we have only been a couple hundred feet below the snow line. I guess they knew what they were doing when they built hundreds of windmills there. A pleasant 35 degrees with a 30 MPH wind sure wears on you by the end of the day.
