Winter weather wreaks havoc on family farm, kills multiple cows

One Trempealeau County farming family is dealing with a devastating blow – a barn caved in on their milking cows late Saturday night.

“It was raining, snowing for a bit but raining real hard, and I guess it fell down. With all the cattle in here,” says Jason Johnson, one of the three owners of the farm. “It just kinda blows your mind a little bit. There ain’t nothing left of it!”

It happened after a long weekend of rain and snow, and a lot of accumulation from February’s record setting conditions.

“My brother was over here some place but we didn’t know where. It was really snowing a lot and very dark because all the lights had been wrecked, and [I was] very concerned for the cattle because there was 200 in this barn.”

The collapse killed six cows instantly and left another with life threatening injuries. None of them survived.
