Farmers watch harsh winter destroy their way of life

Joe Greenbacker, a partner at Brookfield Farm, looks back at collapsed hoop barn on his farm while walking up a steep snowy hill to his dairy barn in Durham, Conn. The barn collapsed under the weight of snow killing one calf. Connecticut agriculture officials say back-to-back snowstorms and a recent ice storm have brought down the roofs of more than 130 barns, greenhouses, equipment buildings and other farm buildings. More than a dozen dairy cows, two horses and a calf have been killed in building collapses. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill)
