Local cattle moved to higher ground
Natchez, MS (NBC33) — Louisiana cattle owners are moving their herds due to rising flood waters, as many in central Louisiana are moving their livestock across the border into Natchez, Mississippi.
They are packing up the cows and tractors and moving them to higher ground.
Some unlucky cattlemen are being forced to sell their cattle because of the possibility of major flooding.
The Natchez Stockyard has been housing thousands of cattle for those unfortunate people; the owner of the stockyard says the price of cattle is the highest he's seen in his life. He considers it a silver-lining to what's happening.
