Ishikawa, Jan 13 (News On Japan) - The impact of the earthquake has extended to livestock farming, with one Wagyu beef ranch in Ishikawa Prefecture unable to get feed delivered due to road damage.
The cowsheds at the Noto Town ranch have been badly damaged, including some semi-collapsed.
Staff are continuing to care for the cattle, commuting from evacuation centers, but due to the power outage, they have been unable to provide water, resulting in the death of one cow.
A section of the road leading to the ranch has caved in, preventing large trucks from passing through and unable to deliver feed.
The person in charge expressed growing concern, stating, "We are going to run out of feed in another week or two."
