Winter costs higher than normal?

Well, we've been spoiled by the weather here in the last day and a half or so in central Iowa. Sunny, warm enough to go outside without feeling like your skin's burning off your face, and trying to act like spring. But, we've got another system headed this way that might give us another 6 inches or so of snow. Anybody else tired of this winter?!

 

Got me thinking earlier today: How's this winter treated your herd? Any more health problems or death loss than normal? What about costs? Has it cost you more -- for feed, etc. -- than normal to get your calves through the winter...that's not over yet? 

 

Man, what a year! Everybody says "we'll all be complaining about how hot and humid it is before we know it." Well, I say bring that on! Ha!
