Stack, Lichtenwalner in News Report on Lack of Snow

University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialists Anne Lichtenwalner and Lois Berg Stack appeared in a Channel 2 (WLBZ) news report Tuesday on some of the effects of the lack of snow this winter. Stack, an ornamental horticulturist, said the lack of snow exposes plant roots to freezing without a protective blanket of snow on the ground. Lichtenwalner, a veterinarian and director of the UMaine Animal Health Lab, said the freeze-thaw-freeze weather can disrupt the lifecycle of parasites, which means healthier and more productive livestock.
