The Montgomery County Sheriff’s office is investigating a cattle theft after 34 steer calves were taken from a pen inside an Iowa sale barn. According to KCCI Des Moines, Don Wolfe, who co-owns the Omaha/Red Oak Livestock Market with his son said the calves were taken from his property between 2:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 7. When the buyer, who bought the calves the day before, came to pick up the cattle, they were gone.
The 34 head of black and black-white face steer calves, with an average weight of 416 pounds, were worth $27,000.
The Wolfes are offering a $3,000 reward for any tips leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 712-623-5107.
