Record-setting snowfall kills 75,000 cows… but the media is silent

Late last week, portions of the Great Plains were buried by a record snowfall that will more than likely have a huge impact on your wallet, but the media has been all but silent.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Okay. I want to tell you another story, and this story is one that… I don’t think anybody in the national media has told,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I got an urgent tweet. This woman tweeted like six times. And she was like, ‘We need help. We need help.’ They’re calling it now the blizzard that never happened.”

TheBlaze reports:

Ranchers are still digging out thousands of their cattle that became buried in a record-setting snowstorm in South Dakota late last week and over the weekend.

One would think the death of 75,000 cows by upwards of five feet of snow might get some national attention, but as one blogger observed, it has taken some time for the news of the precipitation massacre to reach outside of local media.

Early estimates suggest western South Dakota lost at least 5 percent of its cattle, said Silvia Christen, executive director of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association. Some individual ranchers reported losses of 20 percent to 50 percent of their livestock, Christen said. The storm killed calves that were due to be sold soon as well as cows that would produce next year’s calves in an area where livestock production is a big part of the economy, she said.

“This is, from an economic standpoint, something we’re going to feel for a couple of years,” Christen said.

A fierce snowstorm rolled out of the Rocky Mountains last Friday with devastating effects. Trees were downed, state offices closed, and more than 200 miles of Interstate 90 across Wyoming and South Dakota was completely closed. Much of the area is still without power.

“Everything that could go wrong in a storm went wrong in this storm,” Glenn said. “Mercury One is trying to figure out how we can even get resources up to help them, what we can do to help them, but parts of the state are just completely out.”

Typically when we see a weather event of this magnitude – whether it be a tornado, hurricane, or blizzard – the national media pays attention. But so far there has been little to know coverage of this disaster.

“We did a LexisNexis search. No one has covered this. We found out about it, again, because somebody – I don’t even know her story, if she lived there or somebody that she knows lived there and got the information out and tweeted it and said, ‘Please, Glenn, they need help. Somebody needs to report on this,’” Glenn explained. “A week after this snowstorm, no mentions of it at all in any national media. None.”

So why the silence? Glenn had a few theories.

“I think it’s a combination of three things. I think that does play a role, that it is against the global warming thing,” Glenn said. “Two, there’s a lot to cover on the news that is about Washington, everything that’s going on in about Washington. Three, the news departments don’t have any resources out there. So you have to fly in a news crew and everything is closed… You don’t have any resources necessarily out there. I find that a very weak excuse for the networks at least.”

“Here’s what you need to know about this: 75,000 cattle. You may say you don’t care about it. Oh, you will when you see the price of hamburger in the next few months because all of these cows that would have gone to your plate are now dead,” he continued. “These are farmers. These are the best of the best. These are people that are the backbone and always have been the backbone of our country. These are the people that are feeding you.”

Below is an Dothan, AL report about the storm:

    Why is the media silent on the matter – is it just lack of knowing what occurred, or a willful choice on their part due to the victims only being farmers? Or are other reasons at play?

    Is there anyone who knows or has been in contact with people in the affected region who can clarify on the matter?

    They are not “farmers” Glen, they are “ranchers”.  But I get the point.  I read about this only a few days ago and the cattle deaths at that time were estimated at 20,000, so I guess the numbers went up.  Certainly nothing to mock about the tragedy. As I understand it, the event was a “surprise” to the ranchers and they did not have time to move the herds to safe pastures.

    actually, as all scientists, rather than loudmouth news commentators, who actually understand climate science, and are in the no man-made global warming camp, will tell you, individual events do not correlate to proof of either side’s theory.

  • Anonymous

    Sorry Glenn, but saw it in the NYTimes on line, read it in the Wall Street Journal  heard it on NPR, heard it on the BBC America. That was before today. I no longer watch TV news, so I cannot comment, but a quick search shows it appeared more (as you might expect) on the Midwest and great Plains TV stations (where cattle are raised more extensively) than out East.

    Our prayers to the ranchers, and hope that the estimates for the “regional” losses do in fact stay below 5%, and that no one rancher has lost most of their herd.

    It isn’t against the Global warming “thing” to report it Glenn. Legitimate scientists on both sides of the debate know full well that individual events do not determine the outcome of any theory; human megaphones ( Beck, Limbaugh, MSNBC, HuffPost) who don’t understand the science, look to these events as evidence to prove or disprove their predetermined beliefs.

    Glenn thank you for reporting on this story.  More than likely one of the other reasons why the main media sites are not reporting this story is because of the out-of-state utility companies that rushed to South Dakota’s aid to restore their power! (i.e. “doing the right thing” and helping others in need). I know that Nebraska Public Power District (services 91 of 93 Nebraska counties) went there right away to help out.  This company has helped many other cities & states out in the past as well.  Sixteen of their men drove all of the way east to restore power during Hurricane Sandy, working 16 hr days, sleeping in tents or in their own trucks!  Can you imagine any mainstream media showing someone this dedicated to their job & helping others and working hard, long hours like this?  Exactly.  Plus there’s no political gain to be had by publishing anything about it.  And of course we can’t have blizzards during “global warming”…quite the contradiction.

    The gov’t shutdown is the bigger story, that’s why it’s not getting much coverage. This snowstorm doesn’t actually go against the idea of global warming (since warming leads to more moisture in the atmosphere which can lead to heavier precipitation totals, and October isn’t anomalous for snowstorms in South Dakota).

These cows that the bigots are making fun of is a farmers life blood and is the only way they make money to keep things running. They are not cheep and with the government riding their every move it is not easy to keep a farm running. So please show some respect and compassion for the people that lost live stock.

    Sam–I  agree that cherry picking is not something a true scientist can do. It is however a way of life for politicians and commentators.I think like any theory, the data keep coming in and have to be evlauated. I know that the science is way over my head, and I am guessing that only about 500 people (metereologists and such) world wide truly understand the data. The issue on both sides was hijacked by politicos several years ago. IPCC a good example; the fossil fuel underwritten research another. I have not read the most recent report; I know from past experience, to not trust the media summary of those reports because most in the media understand even less.

    It goes to show the corruption in our main stream news media, not one word on Diane Sawyer ABC news at 5:30pm!!!!  They are so involved in the lies about global warming they will not report anything that rebukes their pathetic garbage they put out.  This is alarming that 75,000 cows dying in the snow does not even make the news.  This will impact our beef supplies in the short term you can be sure.  But the horror of that many animals dying a painful slow death, is not important to this bunch of progressive, leftist, corrupt news media.

    Don’t know if it was even on The Weather Channel. My wife has it on quite often, while I have my nose in my computer watching Glenn Beck. The TV is just, to me then, just so much nightlight and moving wallpaper, so I don’t hear what might come across. Once in a while I might glance at it, and see nothing interesting.

    Have any East-West Coast weathermen/women mentioned it, beyond pointing to “precipitation” in the Midwest? They could have alerted their newsrooms to the problem, if they were the least bit on their toes.

    Of course, other news overshadows it, as “they” want to indoctrinate us about the gummint shutdown caused by those “crazy Republicans.”

    Yeah, beef prices might go up soon, so get in on the stock market rise, you astute investors. No, I’m not trying to be insensitive, just noting trends. Having lived on a small farm as a child, and milking 2-3 cows twice daily, I have a soft spot in my heart for the poor cattle freezing to death, and the rancher’s loss. So sad. But, it is life, and adversity must be expected and prepared for.

    Thanks for putting up with my musings.

    Before Mercury One can deliver things to the people living there they’ll have to snowplow everything first. Here’s the thing, though, does having the government be closed mean the state can’t send crews out? That seems sort of odd that the snowplows and stuff aren’t running.Maybe south Dakota has different rules about who can and can’t work than Chicago has. One question, back during the days when the government wasn’t doing federal emergancies what did the people of South Dakota do when there was a huge blizzard? One of the books in the Little House on the Prarie series was all about a blizzard like the one you’re talking about. As far as I remember the only thing the people could do was wait for the snow to melt enough so people and the railroads could get in. Otherwise everyone either dug their way places and walked in each others footprints to get anywhere. Even to stores.

  • John Ward

    Expect to see more of this climate chaos as the planet
    warms. Warmer air holds more moisture, which means that, when the temperature
    drops below freezing, more snow comes down. Also, the warmer Arctic has slowed
    the jet stream, which makes it loopier, pushing cold air southward from the Arctic
    and warm air northward. The jet stream also tends to “block” more
    frequently, so that a weather front, like the Colorado flood, can stay in place
    longer and cause greater damage.

Was the corn damaged?” Her answer boggles my mind, “How do you damage corn?” Uh gee, by running a car into it!

    Glen you probably won’t get this, but just wanted to thank you for bringing this story to America’s attention.  I am a rancher myself and was just on the edge of the storm in Nebraska and was basically unaffected. But I hear stories of fellow ranchers in our neighboring state and some in ours loosing 20 to 50% of there herds.  Now a 20-50% loss in any business would severely cripple or shut down most businesses.  Most of these people affected are hard working family ranches, some with deep roots and some young men just getting started I imagine.   Good Lord is giving us a chance to look UP.   Thanks again.

    Actually, this has more to do with the weather manipulation by our government that is going on through Haarp and chem trails than with the “global warming” BS they are trying to push off on people.

    This is the kind of rant that causes people to believe everyone who professes a belief in God is devoid of common sense :P There is more than enough food in the world to feed every starving person. People aren’t starving because we eat cows or feed them grain…people are starving because there are evil corrupt men that deny them access to food.

    I think that does play a role, that it is against the global warming thing,” Glenn said. 

    It’s called climate change for a reason.  It’s not all about warming; it’s about more and more wild deviations from the norm.

    So why was this ignored? Probably the same reason that the problems with the online ACA exchanges are not being covered. The Tea Party shutdown of the government is taking up the space and time needed for other important stories…like dead cows. We need to eat less beef anyway (something that Beck is oblivious too), and this story just is not that important.

    It was finally on CBS news last night. I live in Rapid City, and some of the losses are way above 5%. Some ranchers lost more than others. Part of the reason was they hadn’t moved the cattle to their winter pastures yet. It was way too early in the fall to move them. Also, they cattle had not gotten their winter coats yet. When the wind blows 70+ mph, the cattle “drift” with the wind, they are blinded and just follow. The drifts were well over the fences, so some cattle ended up miles away from their own pastures.
    We, sadly, are just plain forgotten out here. We have tv reporters that were out in the snow reporting, and I’m sure they could have streamed from them.
    Of course, having electricity restored was a plus too! I was personally out for only 3 days. We still have over a thousand people still with no power. This is day 9 for them.

  • Charlene Rambow Bartholow

    The snow was predicted to be 6-8 inches…. very manageable. As the storm progressed, the prediction got worse. No time to move cattle to their winter pastures, by that time, visibility was zero and the cattle were already drifting with the wind.

  • Charlene Rambow Bartholow

    We do have snow plows here in SD. The problem was the thousands of stranded cars and the downed trees blocking the road ways. Those things had to be removed prior to sending the plows out. We were personally out on Sunday (the storm began on Thursday night), not because of a plow, but because of neighbors helping neighbors. I was one of the lucky ones. I was only without power for 3 days, there are still some out today at day 9.
    Our snow began melting on Saturday , and we were snow free all this week. This was a very rare storm, we are not used to getting snow until November or so, and never this much at one time.

    The media reported it as a “weather” report. “Western SD had a blizzard with lots of snow.” I live in the Black Hills. I believe part of the problem was that the ranchers were not able to get to their fields until the blizzard stopped on Saturday. At that point, they had to get to their fields, which was not easy, with the 8-12 foot drifts on the prairie. Many of the ranches cover vast expanses of prairie, so it isn’t like looking out the back door to check on your dog in the back yard. It wasn’t until Sunday that many were able to get to the road where many cattle were gathered. The numbers of the losses is staggering. Not just one here, and one there… hundreds and hundreds.
    Cattle drifted with the 70+ mph winds and ended up miles and miles away from where they started. Drifts covered the fence lines so they moved into other rancher’s pastures. Some died of exhaustion, others were smothered by the now getting into their noses.
    Complete devastation, but I don’t think the media understands what the farmers and ranchers do for the US. There are relief funds started out there, please look them up and consider helping that way.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention–this is indeed the first I’ve heard of it (although I did hear about the blizzards themselves). However, of your three explanations for the media blackout, this is by far the weakest:

    “I think that does play a role, that it is against the global warming thing,”

    That’s an outdated and faulty argument–it’s not against the “global warming thing.” If anything, it supports the global warming thing, with “climate change” being the unfortunate result. Scientist sbelieve that climate change is associated with extreme weather of all kinds–hurricanes, droughts, blizzards, wildfires, etc., and not just rising temperatures and sea levels.
