Once it was all said and done, we had family and friends there to help us. We cleaned up the wet smoky bedding and by 7pm, the calves were back in the barn!!! It's amazing but no calves were hurt, no people were hurt, the barn is slightly burnt but still in tact, and everything was ok!!!!!! Truly a miracle!!!!! We know we had some angels that day!
Thank you so much to those who came to our aid, the fire department, our quick thinking family, farm safety classes, those who check in on us to make sure that we were ok and most of all thank you to God for protection from what could have been an incredible disaster!!!!! Check out the damage picture below.
Our calf pen with blackened steel in the back where the fire was burning.
Note the plywood, where the fire department ripped a hole in the wall to find a hot spot.
Gates and steel all blackened from the flames. Our plastic windows also melted.
2nd pen where the round bale was sitting. The steel is now black as well.
