Norman Frank, a veteran of World War II and of many years in the cattle business, brands a calf. Frank and his wife, Wanda, of Riverside, brand and vaccinate calves Norman Frank buys at the Blackfoot Livestock Auction and feed throughout the winter before marketing them the spring.

RIVERSIDE — Norman Frank was patriotic before he was drafted into the Army during World War II, but even more patriotic afterward.

Living off the Land: Winter or frost damage?

Lance Ellis

Needless to say, this winter was not easy or pleasant for people, livestock and plants in eastern Idaho. This spring, I have seen the impact of low temperatures, wind chill and late frosts on trees and shrubs. This winter reaffirms that most parts of our area are still a Plant Hardiness USDA Zone 4 and any tree, shrub or vine meant for a Zone 5 to 6 will have either died or suffered damage.
