Winter Storm Ulmer certainly affected local life in Wyoming, with huge impacts for the ranchers in the area as well. However, one video of a family in South Dakota working to free their cattle from snow drifts shows just how much the impact can be.

According to KXAN: "Dale Jessie Vocu who shot the video says it's an example of the "loving side" of ranching." While it is a scary thought, that these poor cows were buried under the snow, it does show the compassion of the family, who spent hours on Thursday getting the cows free to rejoin the rest of the herd.
