Upper Klamath Basin ranchers lost money in 2013

Water shutoffs in the Upper Klamath Basin led to losses of approximately $94,000 in 2013.

Duarte made the estimation based on the number of yearlings he had to sell early. He had 656 yearlings, each selling when they were about 100 pounds below the weight they should have been. He got paid about $1.46 per pound, or $146 per 100 pounds. Take that times the number of yearlings, and it equates to $94,316.
