The swollen South Platte River threatened animals at Horizon Vue Dairy last week, but the dairy was able to move them to higher ground.

“We had about 100, 150 calves that we had to get somewhere else, and then about 80 head of cows,” dairy owner Debbie Carpio told the Denver Post.

“We didn’t lose any animals at all,” Carpio said.

Horizon Vue Dairy is located east of Kersey, Colo. Heavy rainfall in northern Colorado created flooding in many communities.
