An active severe weather season continues to threaten Illinois farms.
Alex Hartke of Teutopolis tells Brownfield a Monday morning storm caused structural damage on their farm in southern Illinois.
“The winds picked up and the sky got really dark. Come to find out that our monoslope cattle barn, which houses over 90% of our feed lot cattle was gone. We had high winds that took it off the foundation.”
He says the 90-year-old barn was the only thing damaged, but it left 550 head of steers without shelter.
