 The doors at Clay Center's Meat Animal Research Center also remain closed Wednesday.  But, as a working farm, operations cannot shut down completely.
Federal employees remain furloughed while the Research Center's state employee continue to report to work.

News 5 spoke to one of those state workers who said their job is to take care of all of the crops and animals while the facility remains closed.

One big change?  With the scientists and researchers furloughed, the state workers are not taking samples of the crops or animals.
