As threats of flooding continue along the Red River, some farmers and ranchers have been hard at work moving their livelihood to higher ground. One family with cattle in DeKalb, Texas is even having to auction some of them off. It is a muddy mess and alot of work but when it comes down to protecting the livelihood of the Clack family, moving more than a thousand head of cattle is the only option. "We are shipping out about 600 head of heifers and steers, we have lost money on them because we had the grass to feed them but if the river floods it it going to take away the grass, " said Robert Clack. Robert and his brother, John, have been working night and day this week to move cattle from the north end of DeKalb to the south; Getting the animals out of the river bottoms to Jamabu Ranch. "We have been watching the weather, we dont know what the river is going to do." Some are being sold to prevent crowding in the pastures on high ground. The transition is hard. "We have lost several calves so far and then getting them back to their mommas creates a problem," said John Clack. The Clacks say the work is hard...Getting stuck in the mud....calves that wont cooperate. But its all worth it to know that the Red River wont get the best of "B and J". "We have other things to be doing, it is just one of those things, we cant control the weather." The Clacks say even if it doesnt flood, they have piece of mind just knowing their cattle are safe.
