California farmers are struggling to save their ranches from several wildfires burning across the state.

The huge wildfires like the "Ponderosa Fire" are damaging thousands of acres of rangeland that provided feed for livestock. Ranchers in Lassen County have moved sheep and cattle away from another fire.

Ag experts say the fire-damaged rangeland may take up to three years to recover.
