One of 35 Minnesota livestock buildings damaged by heavy snow in recent weeks
The roof of the cattle barn at the Minnesota State
Fairgrounds is the latest casualty of heavy snow.
The nearly 100-year old building used to house more than
1,000 animals was damaged Tuesday by a mixture of rain and snow that weighed on
a 40 to 50-foot section of the roof until it caved in.
The Minnesota State Fair says some windows were also
damaged, but the rest of the building remains structurally sound.
