A few weeks ago we had a few calves decide the top fence rail was no challenge. So they hopped right over and two of them have not been seen since. It is always an interesting feat to find missing cattle. This is especially true when you are in the middle of crop country and fences may be few and far between. We took all day looking for those calves and here are a few photos snapped along the way.
It is always an adventure trying to find livestock that escape. Their adrenaline starts pumping and it is amazing how fast and far they will go. Do you have any stories of searching for livestock that may have escaped? Share them with me and find many more farmers and ranchers on the I am Agriculture Proud Facebook group.
