BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota agricultural officials are encouraging ranchers to protect their newborn and young livestock in advance of this weekend’s predicted storm.

The National Weather Service says there’s a possibility for up to half a foot of heavy, wet snow in the western part of the state, along with gusty winds and falling temperatures.

State Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the weather may leave calves and lambs vulnerable to hypothermia. He says producers should consider moving young livestock inside buildings or protected areas.
