Melting winter snow pack and heavy rain is causing problems for Utah dairy producers in the Ogden area, reports the Ogden Standard-Examiner.
Ron Gibson, who milks 1,500 cows and farms 1,200 acres, has about 400 acres of land underwater. Gibson is a fifth-generation Utah dairy producer, with the land homesteaded in 1869. That long family legacy puts added pressure on him not to lose what previous generations of his family built.
