Josh Schumaker, 27, left, and Karl Knutson, 25, ride through pasture east of Sturgis along Highway 34 on Monday. Knutson and Schumaker were checking on cattle at Knutson's father's place. “This is the worse than I’ve ever seen for loss of livestock,” said Knutson, who was born and raised in Belle Fourche. He said this was worse than the worst storm he could remember which was back in the mid-90s, and especially bad for this early in the season. “For as early as it is, it’s the worst I’ve seen."
