Larry vs. the Rexburg, Idaho Frozen Winters

In a recounting of his life compiled by Marilee, Larry says, “The winters in Idaho are cold. And we calved in February. Temperatures often dipped to 20 degrees below zero. When the cows were ready to calve, we would bring them into the barn. Once in a while, we would misjudge the timing, and a cow would calve out in the snow. We would gather up Mama and the calf and bring them to the barn, but a few times, the calf would have frozen ears, so I would bring him into the house and put him in a bathtub of warm water.”
