Hurricane Matthew Devastates Eastern North Carolina: Update from CEFS’ Field Research and Outreach Facility at Cherry Farm in Goldsboro

Water continues to be at record high levels and access to the livestock units (swine, dairy, and beef) is limited. We do have power and water pressure at those units which is a blessing. Currently, we are ferrying people in to milk and feed by boat. Milk is being dumped. Calving season has started (5 hit the ground today), with an expected 75-80 over the next two weeks. Water is now in the shop, service building, and possibly the office.
