Cattle Drive An Udder Disaster

11/13/17 – A weekend cattle drive planned in Dodge County never came to pass as some of the animals damaged a soybean field. Dodge County sheriff’s deputies say it happened Sunday morning as 15 horseback riders planned to move 50 cows from the town of Lebanon through Hustisford to a farm at Juneau. But as soon as the drive began, deputies say a number of the animals wandered into a neighboring field of soybeans, causing damage to the crop — and the cattle were then corralled as the drive ended at that point. Deputies say they’re working with the owners of the cattle and the damaged field to resolve the matter. Dodge County sheriff’s officials said they opposed the drive to begin with — because it would have followed county roads for about 15 miles and state laws gives cows the right of way.
