Nine cows were killed yesterday — and others were trapped — when 60,000 pounds of hay fell through the loft floor above them.

The loft floor of a barn belonging to the Petersheim family in Lower Chanceford Township collapsed while people were loading hay bales into the loft on Friday, July 29, 2011. The floor and hay collapsed onto the Petersheims' cows on the ground level of the barn, and killed nine cows, according to Ben Petersheim. Petersheim also said there were about 1,500 bales of hay in the barn at the time, each weighing about 40 pounds.
