In Nebraska, people not only ones feeling chill

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)--The bitterly cold temperatures may be taking their toll on people, but they're also creating challenges for cattle.

Sandhills producer Barb Cooksley says making sure her cattle have water has been difficult in the freezing temperatures.

It's nice to have wind to keep the windmills turning, but Cooksley says in times when the temperatures drop below zero, the wind chills become dangerous for cattle.

She says keeping cattle inside during such weather is not an option. It would be more dangerous to crowd them into a shelter where any developing illness could spread rapidly.

She also says crowding is not good for them because, unlike people, they can't come inside and take off their winter coats.
