Emergency managers in Southeastern Colorado are now overwhelmed with offers of heavy equipment to help out farmers and ranchers after a major snowstorm, as pilots, snowmobilers and others race to provide hay and drinking water to thousands of stranded cattle.
Teams gathered for a briefing early today before heading out to continue dropping bales from the air, and trucking in hay to cattle along a growing number of county roads they have been cleared of snow.
Polly White of the Colorado Division of Emergency Management says no additional equipment is necessary, despite some national media reports that more was needed in the area.
Teams loaded up supplies Wednesday night to be ready to start Thursday morning with eight helicopters, a C-130 and ground vehicles.
More than 900 bales of hay were dropped Wednesday.
