The Missouri River is roughly a mile over its banks. That’s forcing livestock producers near the river to take extreme measures to take care of their animals.
One producer in Blair, Nebraska has to travel by boat to get to his hogs. Luckily, his hogs are safe on higher ground. Fortunately, there are roughly 1,000 head in the barn and they are all a smaller weight. It’s helpful since loading feed won’t be as difficult and the livestock won’t be ready to go to market just yet.
