Ranchers lost more than 37,000 cattle in Montana during the 2018 winter.

The Billings Gazette reported Sunday that the federal Livestock Indemnity Program paid out $11.1 million for the loss of more than 37,000 cattle in Montana last year.

Gilles Stockton, a rancher from Grassrange, says ranchers can’t predict all the challenges winter will bring.
