TOWN OF WOODVILLE – The Hollandtown Fire Department was on the scene at the Grandview Dairy Farm on Thursday morning (April 19) after signs of stress raised concerns about a possible roof collapse on one of the large free-stall barns.

Firefighters used high-pressure spray from a fire hose to wash the snow pack off the roof.

The April 26 print edition of The Brillion News will feature information for farmers about planning to prevent roof collapses next winter. The information comes from several states’ extension services and several companies that write farm insurance coverage.
