Authorities Reveal Cause of Texas Dairy Farm Explosion That Killed 20-000 Cows

Authorities have revealed the cause of the Texas dairy farm explosion that killed nearly 20,000 in April this year.

The massive explosion at the South Fork Dairy in Dimmitt, Texas, killed thousands of cattle and injured one person.

The smoke from the explosion was so large it could be seen by witnesses 80 miles away.

According to investigators, an engine fire in the manure hauler caused the explosion.

However, it is unclear what caused the engine fire, but authorities claim there was “no intentional act to cause a failure.”

AP reported:

A fire and explosion at a dairy farm in the Texas Panhandle that injured one person and killed an estimated 18,000 head of cattle was an accident that started with an engine fire in a manure vacuum truck cleaning part of the massive barn, according to state investigators.

A State Fire Marshal report of the April 10 fire at the Southfork Dairy Farm about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Amarillo did not determine what caused the engine fire but found there was “no intentional act to cause a failure.” The April 24 report said the investigation was closed.

The explosion adds to a long list of mysterious farm fires.

The Poultry Site reported more than 518,000 farm animals perished in barn fires in 2022, according to an Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) analysis.

As The Daily Fetched reported last year, dozens of food processing plants were destroyed by ‘accidental fires,’ the first major one was reported in 2023 as a commercial egg farm in Bozrah, Connecticut.

The fires come amid a string of suspicious fires at food plants which became almost an epidemic in 2022.

According to Bloomberg data, “food plant fire” reports jumped the most in a decade last year.

Maybe the gas stove was left in.

This does not say what caused the explosion. A fire in the engine is not an explosion. Manure does not explode. Manure is wet and might not even catch on fire. 20,000 cows? That is a very big explosion. Something smells with the investigation.

Manure produces methane gas as it decays

Yeah….all farmers ranchers are well aware of that …captain obvious. So manure is always spread, never contained for any period of time. Still does not explain….explosion. Something rotten in Denmark.

Consider the acreage required for 18,000 head of cattle…a tractor explosion? Not likely.

It’s not easy to cause an explosion with the force to K**l 18,000 animals at 300-400 pounds a piece. An engine fire with gas tank exploding could probably K**l 20-30 if they were immediately adjacent to the explosion, that’s my guess. But 18,000! That’s like a small stadium full. To K**l that many animals the blast radius would be that of a MOAB. So what really happened here?
