Heavy snow causes challenges for farmers

Farmers like Luxemburg’s Tom Cornette already has a full list of chores to tend to every day, even without winter storms getting in the way. The National Weather Service is predicting close to a foot of snow will fall in Door and Kewaunee counties through Wednesday morning. Cornette predicts he and his family members will spend a total of five hours plowing snow at Cornette Dairy and other properties where they have animals so they can do their feedings safely and allow their hauler to pick up their milk easier. It is days like these Cornette is glad he invested in robotic technology like milkers and feed pushers for his barns so while he moves snow outside, he knows his cows are being taken care of inside.

Cornette says he still prefers snow over ice or rain as the additional cover will help protect the fields from extreme cold.
