“Our immediate concerns are with those farms that are dealing with the devastating impacts of the record snowfall," said Dean Norton, president of New York Farm Bureau.
"The snow load weighing down the roofs of barns and greenhouses remains a serious concern, and we encourage all farmers to keep a close watch on the conditions and prepare to move people, animals and equipment to a safer location if need be.
"In addition, we have been in touch with our Congressional delegation as well concerning needs and resources. We greatly appreciate everyone’s hard work in this emergency situation. New York Farm Bureau will assist our members to navigate any disaster assistance should it become available,” Norton said.
