At the beginning of the austral winter, I wrote an article about the huge quantities of snow falling over Patagonia in Argentina. There was so much snow in the first few days of their winter, that animals were buried alive:
Now, Argentinian farmers are counting their losses. According to first official estimates, the heavy snowstorms and frosts in the high areas of the Argentine Patagonia Rio Negro province could have caused the death of 70% of the flock.
Of course we still have to wait until October to have more accurate numbers… But we are talking of at least 100,000 sheep and 5,000 cattle DEAD.
“We estimate that the worse losses are along the mountainous terrain between 1,000 and 1,300 meters above sea level, while at sea level we can expect sheep mortality in the range of 30%.”
These small farmers require an extraordinary economic aid… Otherwise they will die or go bankrupt. Another agriculture emergency caused by apocalyptic climatic conditions.
