Heifer Ranch sustained significant damage in the strong storms that moved through Arkansas April 25.
Several buildings, including the horse, dairy and lambing barns, were destroyed, as well as a pump house and yurts, felt-covered dwelling native to Central Asia, in the Ranchs Global Village section. Several roofs were damaged, including the main conference center, an office building and a vacant residential facility. Heifer employees and volunteers are working to clear many downed trees and to cover exposed structures with tarpaulins.
All Heifer Ranch employees, residents, volunteers are safe and guests who were participating in activities at the Ranch have returned to their homes.
The Ranch will be closed to the public for the remainder of the week, and Heifer Ranch staff will contact groups affected by this closure. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
