DURHAM — About 30 cows munched on hay recently at Brookfield Farm, more languid than usual with the high temperatures and muggy air outside, relishing the relative cool in the big barn.
A sense of loss hung in the air as heifers poked their heads out of corrals flanking a central open area, a day after Melissa Greenbacker-Dziurgot, her father Joe Greenbacker and other family members sold 200 heifers at auction. The barn was devoid of most of them: Holsteins and Jerseys, Brown Swiss and Milking Shorthorns.
