(Bismarck, ND) -- The recent heavy snowfall is tasking ranchers with fixing fences ahead of the spring.

Winters like the one North Dakota has had so far makes it ten-times harder.

Ranchers are prepping materials they need to fix damaged fencing now so they won't be behind come springtime.

Most of the time damaged areas can be mended, but with the deep, heavy snow that's come down, some spots will just have to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up.
