Tornado

On Monday, June 22, a tornado swept through Decker, Michigan and destroyed a significant part of the Devor dairy farm. As shown in these pictures, several barns, numerous pieces of farm equipment, trailers, and a farmhouse were all torn to shreds within a matter of only three minutes.

Devor dairy farm has nearly 3,500 cows but thanks to the care and concern of neighboring dairy farmers, many of the cows were transported to local farms where they will be cared for during the clean-up process.  From the moment of destruction, many members of the community rushed to the farm to serve as volunteers. AIS employees, Chad Fullerton and Shaun Wolschleger, were glad to be part of the many friends and neighbors that helped clean up the devastating aftermath that occurred in Sanilac County on Monday night.
