While many farmers have been forced to move cattle and equipment out from under collapsing barn roofs in recent days, others were left to wonder about feedings and milk pick-ups. Milk transport trucks struggled to get to farms last weekend while blizzard conditions from Winter Storm Evelyn forced many to delay pick-ups or stay off the road entirely. DoorCountyDailyNews.com Ag Advisory Board Member and Thunderstruck Holsteins owner Greg Letter is thankful for his trucking company and some forward thinking for being able to make it through the blizzard so he was not forced to dump hundreds of gallons of milk and money down the drain like some were forced to do.
Letter says he had to move snow four to five hours a day during the storm in order to keep up with other tasks on the farm.
