Most Cows Live After Barn Roof Collapses in Ellisburg

Posted: Updated:

A rescue to save the animals inside.

Firefighters and volunteers spent Saturday night in the freezing cold getting cows out of a barn after part of the roof collapsed at Locust Hill Farm in the town of Ellisburg.

Ellisburg Fire Chief Lynn Bertram said around 90 percent of the heffers that were in danger got out alive.

Bertram said probably 50 animals at the time were trapped inside due to a heavy snow drift on the east side of the roof causing the collapse.

Somewhere between 7 to 8 thousand square feet of the roof caved in on the barn built in 2008. The farm has insurance.
