Arctic View Farms of Galesville is suing Xcel Energy for more than 6 million dollars.

According to Saturday’s La Crosse Tribune, owners Paul and Lyn Halderson claim stray voltage caused illness and decreased milk production for more than a decade, in their herd of over 900 cows. Xcel claims no harmful currents were present near the herd and believe Halderson’s problems resulted from his expansion during difficult times for the dairy industry, bad feed, disease, inadequate veterinary care and poor conditions for the cattle. The three-week trial is set to begin Monday in Trempealeau County Circuit Court.
