The cold snap is creating challenges for livestock producers.

Carson Callum is general manager of Manitoba Beef Producers.

"This cold weather really results in cattle eating or requiring a lot more feed," he said. "We were already in a feed deficit going into the winter and producers having to source a lot of external feed and this long stretch of cold weather is just adding to that demand on each individual operation. That's the main challenge among other things. Trying to ensure that they have proper shelter and all the important things that producers focus on with managing the natural landscape."

Callum added the fluctuation in temperatures also leads to challenges.

"It can lead to health related challenges, getting pneumonia and those type of things," he noted.
