Heavy Rain Leaves Ranchers With Mixed Emotions

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Rain has been welcome on dried out California pastures, but some cattle ranchers say they´ve seen too much of a good thing.

Several are even hoping for a dry spell. Rainfall in the northwest region stands at more than 60 percent above average.

Muddy pastures complicate ranchers´ work to care for their herds. One rancher reports that a third of his pastureland has been underwater since December.
