Heather Jauquet talks about Miracle, a calf that was born during an April blizzard that collapsed part of the roof of a nearby barn on the family's farm near Pulaski.

His organization tracks barn collapses and counts at least 45 across the state. Historically, there are only one or two in a typical winter. Most of the collapses have involved milking barns . Sjostrom said those farmers face an immediate challenge because their surviving cows need to be milked at least

He owns and operates the Klondike Valley Creamery, the Yukon's only dairy farm, just south of Dawson City. Last week, his new barn collapsed with 7 dairy cows inside.

Loren Sadlier, a dairy farmer near Dawson City, Yukon, was just heading out to milk his cows last Wednesday when he noticed it.

"The barn didn't look right," he recalled.

"The front wall and one side wall that I was looking at were still there, they just were crooked. And then you know, that registered, and then it was well, the roof isn't there."

The barn had collapsed. It took a couple of seconds for the question to sink in: "Do I have any cows left?"

For businesses that rely on schools, rotating strikes are making life tough

  For businesses that rely on schools, rotating strikes are making life tough The impact of rotating school strikes is starting to reverberate beyond the classroom, with local businesses that rely on schools for revenue taking a hit. Danielle Le Saux-Farmer, artistic director of Catapulte Theatre, said her theatre company has lost 50 per cent of its expected audience for this week's student matinee performances because of planned strikes.The company puts on shows at La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins, a French-language theatre in Ottawa.

Wrecking Barn Farm , just 30 miles from the acclaimed Wrecking Bar Brewpub in Atlanta’s Little Five Points, is committed to growing high-quality and diverse organic produce for its sibling bar-restaurant, other fine area dining destinations, an expanding CSA, and farmers markets.

Sadlier and his family operate Yukon's only working dairy farm — Klondike Valley Creamery — and they had seven cows somewhere inside the wreckage.

The barn's windows and doors had blown out, and it was a mess of rubble inside. Sadlier immediately got busy.

"I kind of got in there, and I could hear one cow breathing," he said.

It was hard at first to figure out where all the cows were. Some were buried in plywood and lumber, and he couldn't tell which ones.

He found four of the seven squeezed in near one wall that was still standing. Those animals were mostly fine, and he was able to walk them out through a narrow space.

"So I knew that I had a few," he recalled.

Liberals pull plug on 12-year-old plan to move elite Joint Task Force 2 unit

  Liberals pull plug on 12-year-old plan to move elite Joint Task Force 2 unit OTTAWA — The Liberal government is pulling the plug on a 12-year-old plan to move the military's elite Joint Task Force 2 from its base near the national capital. The decision ends more than a decade of speculation and uncertainty for the commando unit's members and their families as well as the Ontario community of Trenton, where the new base was to be located. Stephen Harper's Conservative government bought a large swath of land for the new facility near Canadian Forces Base Trenton and announced the plan to move the unit in 2007.

The other three were trapped under the debris. He went and got his sons to come help.

"We gathered up chainsaws and angle grinders and snow shovels, and just started extricating cows," he said.

It wasn't easy — Sadlier had to crawl in under the collapsed roof to find them, then push a stick up through the deep snow so they knew where to dig and cut.

"It took about an hour per cow."

One of the trapped animals was his only milking cow right now. She was pinned on her side by debris and Sadlier thinks she'd pretty much thrown in the towel. She was the first they managed to free.

"You can only hold them down for so long, and then they just decide that it's over. So it took quite a bit of convincing her that she was indeed still alive," he said.

The last two were alive too — and soon enough also out of the rubble.

Snow on the roof

Later, Sadlier poked around and figured out what caused the collapse.

For years beef farmer Jay Wilde has been concerned about the welfare of his cows and the environmental impact of beef farming . Today he’s doing something about it.

Farming runs in Jay Wilde’s family. His late father grew up raising cattle on Bradley Nook farm in Derbyshire. Wilde grew up running through the motions of maintaining the Last summer, the farmer and his wife sent most of their 70 cattle to an animal sanctuary in Norfolk, keeping 12 cows and five

"It was definitely the snow load ... I'm not sure how many days it hasn't snowed," he said.

"We've figured there was very nearly 110 tonnes of snow on the roof ...  it was one connection joint where the truss joined the wall, that shifted — and it was just enough of a shift to start a domino effect and bring the whole thing down."

It's a setback for his farming operation. Sadlier said they just spent most of last summer building the barn because they needed the space. Now, they'll be cleaning it up and salvaging what they can. They've already had friends from town come out to help clean things up.

They're not giving up the business. Sadlier's aiming to get a prefab barn shipped out from Ontario so he can get something new up quickly.

In the meantime, he's moved his dairy cows into his older barn for the winter. He says it'll be tight but they'll get by.

As for their brush with death, Sadlier says the animals have handled it well.

"I think most of them forgot that it happened already," he said.
