The collapse of a barn during Tuesday night storms killed at least 15 cows, according to the owner of a farm on Canal Road east of Marshall.
Ed Herman told News 3 half of the barn collapsed or was blown away when storms rolled through the area around 8:30 p.m.
"Where it fell down there were animals trapped under it and we lifted them up and got them out," Herman said. "The dead animals ... there were cattle running everywhere. It was devastating."
The barn was a unique mono-slope barn, one of few of its kind in the state, according to Herman. The barn was 3 years old.
"It was supposed to be engineered to withstand the snow load and the straight-line winds," Herman said. "[The wind] had to be unbelievably strong. It was engineered and designed to withstand that and apparently it didn't."
Herman said at least 15 feeder cattle were killed and more might need to be euthanized.
