Idle Gold Guernsey Farm sustained heavy damage during Friday's severe weather.

"You can see the hole in our barn, the roof came down to here," said Laura Jensen. "You see so much damage. It's hard to know where to even start."

An insurance adjuster was out inspecting the damage Monday, but they don't know yet how much damage was done.

"With the insurance and the banks, we'll decide from here whether we rebuild or whether we go ahead and decide to sell," said Neil Jensen. 

The owners, Neil and Janice Jensen, tell KARE 11 that out of 300 cows, one calf died. About 150 more were moved to other farms after people reached out to help.

"It's been unbelievable. Very grateful for everyone who has shown up," said Laura.

Some good news for the Jensen's as they try to remain positive through this trying time.

"Been very blessed with everyone who has helped us," said Laura. "Working out so far."
