3 cows die when barn Framingham farm collapses


FRAMINGHAM (AP) -- Officials say three cows were killed and several others were injured when the roof of their barn at a Framingham farm collapsed apparently under the weight of snow.

Firefighters responded to Eastleigh Farm at about 8 a.m. Wednesday.

After checking to make sure there were no human casualties, firefighters helped farm workers remove several of the approximately 10 cows that were inside the metal-roofed feeding shelter when it collapsed. Others made it out unassisted.

Owner Doug Stephan tells the Boston Herald that three cows died.

Several others needed the attention of veterinarians.

He says he has about 70 dairy cows on the farm.
