Well, db, maybe I should have made myself more clear and like I said it is purely personal observation. Range cattle in AZ, NM, NV calve just fine in snow, rain (never have seen in "sleet"), all on their own and alone, yes - but it is "dry" for all intense and purposes. This compared to the southeast (for my observations, included NC, TN) where, when it rains/snows it can be really "wet", damp, whatever you want to call it and the ground seems to really retain moisture. There just seems to this observer to be a higher "percent" (which is low, so "percent" is on your side) of complications in wet damp conditions.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
