The clean up begins! Probably a couple of months before we can allow any walk in customers due to fire codes. We'll be back up better than ever. Livestock is still happy and we probably will be able to ship within a couple of weeks.

With the HVAC units out, the temporary heating system is doing a great job on keeping air temp toasty.

Today the crew is cleaning the floors, removing ceiling tiles,+ and cleaning in the main indoor part of the facility. HEPA air scrubbers are set up throughout the facility, these have carbon and HEPA filters. Those combined with the Hydroxyl Generators are removing all odors and air contaminants.

I was thinking about the skimmers and filters pulling in the smoke and soot, and then fire hoses drenching the tanks.
It was a miracle the tanks and animals survived.
How long can the tanks handle being sealed up and with no lighting?
Skimmers on?

Very sorry about the fire but at least the livestock wasn’t harmed. Hopefully you will be back to full operations soon.

So sorry this happened. I’m glad no people, or animals got hurt. Looking forward to ordering when your are back up and running. I hope everything comes back together quickly.

All areas in the main livestock sections of the facility have been cleaned and decontaminated. Air scrubbers and temporary heating systems are in place. Next steps are evaluation by the public adjuster's team as to demolition and rebuilding of necessary sections--for sure the office/storage/packing areas will be demolished and rebuilt.

Livestock systems are running normally and all livestock remains unaffected.

A temporary office is being brought in this week and we hope to be able to ship soon!
