Another disaster destroys key food staple amid widespread food shortages and high inflation.
An explosion at a Texas dairy farm killed tens of thousands of cows on Monday night according to authorities.
An explosion spread to the barn of the South Fork Dairy Farm in Dimmitt, where the blaze killed over 18,000 cattle and critically injured a dairy farm worker, who has been hospitalized.

Sheriff Sal Rivera says the fire from the explosion spread to the building where they haul cattle before bringing them into the milking area and into a holding pen. Because of this, Sheriff Rivera says only a small percentage of cows survived.
“Your count probably is close to that. There’s some that survived, there’s some that are probably injured to the point where they’ll have to be destroyed,” said Castro County Sheriff, Sal Rivera.
The cause of the explosion remains unknown.
However, according to Sheriff Rivera, “early speculation is that methane may have been ignited by overheating electrical equipment used to suck out waste from the holding pens,” NBC DFW reported.
Only a small percentage of the cows at the facility survived.
The incident marks the deadliest barn fire for cattle overall, according to the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI), which began keeping track of barn fires in 2013.
“We hope the industry will remain focused on this issue and strongly encourage farms to adopt commonsense fire safety measures. It is hard to imagine anything worse than being burned alive,” said Margie Fishman, AWI Public Relations Manager.
Dimmitt residents told KFDA 10 the fire’s smoke could be seen for miles.
“We look up, we’re inside and we go out and look through the window, and we just see clouds. It was like an explosion,” said Maleki Laurent, a Dimmitt resident. “The whole thing was on fire, and it was crazy.”
Other residents expressed concerns for the dairy workers and economy of the Dimmitt, a town 65 miles southwest of Amarillo with a population of less than 5,000.
“That’s a lot of the money that we have and then a lot of milk also too. So I think it’s really crazy that that happened,” says Alex Aguilar, a Dimmitt resident.
Resident Renzo Sullivan said, “It was crazy because it’s like something like that happening here is like kind of unheard of, you know. So it was just like it was a mind-blowing thing to hear.”
“It is kind of painful because it’s like that’s kind of what we do here, and that’s how we get our money for like the city and all that. So that’s just a major drop for us,” he added.
This comes amid a mysterious spate of fires, explosions, and cyberattacks on food depots and processing plants over the last year.
Disasters like diseases and heatwaves have also been wiping out chickens and livestock and gnarled supply chains from residual COVID policies have led to food shortages in the U.S.
As Infowars has thoroughly covered, the uptick in disasters surrounding food depots and key U.S. infrastructure is part and parcel of the globalists’ agenda to collapse America.
