Case Narrative

After the secured lender was granted relief from stay, DSI was retained to provide oversight of the 1,600 head dairy farm operations to ensure that there was no diminution of asset value until the herd could be sold and equipment staged for auction. With the assistance of DSI, competitive bids for the herd were obtained with the cows being sold on an expedited basis, the equipment was successfully auctioned on site and lagoon levels were reduced through a pro-active land application process so that the facility could be winterized and shut down prior to winter.
