Tornado Takes Livestock From Vilonia Farmer

Don Scroggin and his wife live on a farm and raise cows for a living. He now looks at an empty cow field after Sunday's tornado hit Vilonia.
VILONIA, AR - Don Scroggin now looks at an empty field after Sunday's tornado hit Vilonia.

"Most of them that died were about a quarter of a mile southeast," says Scroggin.

Don says his fields used to be filled with cattle.

"They were supposed to be sold on video with Superior Live Stock Auction but you can't deliver something you don't have," says Scroggin.

Don and his wife live on a farm and raise cows for a living.

"They sold on superior weighing nine and a quarter 900 on some, and 925 on some others for a buck 65," says Scroggin.

The couple chose to ride out the deadly tornado inside of their two story home.

Lucky for the couple they got out without a scratch. Later Don came outside to find his barn, shop, pool house, and his source of income gone.

"The Good Lord had a plan and so the plan was for me to over come it and I will try to do what he wants me to do," says Scroggin.

That plan is to take care of his loved ones.

"Family is the only thing you really got. Family and God that's the only two things you can really count on," says Scroggin.

Now Don, with the help of his family and friends, will rebuild the fences that will hold his new life.
