This Fallout Shelter Was Built In Nebraska In 1963 To Keep Cows Safe
You already know about the fallout shelter Roberts Dairy built underground in Omaha. But did you know that they built a second concrete shelter designed to protect cows in the event of a nuclear attack?
While the experiment proved that dairy cows could still produce while living underground, the shelter was thankfully never needed. The idea of a whole herd of cows living underground may seem silly now, but under the threat of nuclear war it was an excellent idea to keep the food supply up and running.
