Yup me too. I've lived and worked on farms for most of my life as well. I even delivered feed to farmers all over Alberta! I'm just going to share a little bit of my knowledge on the subject.
Alberta had -50 degrees Celsius for about 2 days last year and a few weeks of -30 to -45 degrees Celsius. A neighbor of ours runs dairy and beef cows. about 1200 dairy and 5000+ beef cows. All of his feed comes from his lands. He buys salt, mineral, and black molasses from the co-op. Over a month of the worst cold snap ever he lost 2 calves and an old beef cow. He checks on his cows EVERY day 2 to 3 times as this is a JOB to him. He also runs the milking parlor and this takes up the rest of his day. He has 3 hired hands and a brother who helps him out. His wife also works in the barn. So that's five people checking on the cows every day! He has heaters in all of his water troughs, shelters, graineries, round bails, ect,ect. This info Is all from his mouth. He has never had a MASS DIE OFF! At the most 10 in a year, and that would be a horrible year. When you do this for a living you learn to sell the old beef fast or when it stops making a calving quota! Since the MAD COW SCARE, most beef cows are on a rotation anyways. They don't let cows get to old anymore. period! As for the veterinarian investigating the cows, even a herd of 200 will see a vet for multiple problems, they get sick, they eat bad weeds, they trip in a badger hole, newborn calves come out dead, ect ect.
When I delivered feed to farms, depending on the farm I'd have to disinfect the trucks tires before and after entering the farm. This way I don't bring viruses from one farm to another. I'd also have to disinfect my shoes and gloves! Most milking farms won't allow you in the barns, you delivered the feed or minerals to other barns or sheds. Pig farms where the worst for disease security. One farm had us deliver the feed next door and then I could hand them bags but was not allowed off the truck. I just supplied this info so you could all see how SERIOUS farmers are in their jobs! It's not some game where they don't check on their livestock every day, 3 times a day or ten times a day. Most of them live in the barn or field, even hobby farmers with 5-10 cows will check every day. That's because its big business and 5-10 can turn into 20 in no time!
Just my two cents, I personally think a die off of 200 cows in a matter of even 6 months is a HUGE PROBLEM! That's well over $200,000.00 in beef that just became dog food! $350,000.00 Canadian!

Thank you for your post - very informative and as you stated this is not normal - I didn't think so. I would keep close watch on them and tell any other farmers with herds to do the same.

The google map showing deaths just since mid December is staggering. I noticed the death of dolphins and whales in this time frame as well.

We need some answers and soon!

Surprised no one has jumped all over this yet...

VietNamNet Bridge – In several days, the number of dead cattle in northern Vietnam has rocketed. By January 12, nearly 4400 buffaloes and cows were dead, up by nearly 2000 heads over January 11.

According to the Animal Husbandry Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Son La province suffered the highest loss, with 1300 heads, followed by Lao Cai with over 800 heads.

The department chief Hoang Kim Giao took a field trip to some northern mountain districts on January 13. Giao said that though northern provinces have timely implemented measures to protect cattle from the chill, the number of dead cattle still keeps rising. He said if the cold weather continues, the damage will be huge.

A cold spell has hit northern Vietnam since early January 2011 and it is forecast to last until January 21. Its damage is only behind the historical chill in 2008, which last for 38 days, killing up to 52,000 cattle heads, 150,000 hectares of rice, totaling VND400 billion (over $20 million) of losses.

TOWN OF STOCKTON, Wis. (AP) — An investigation is under way after 200 dead cows were found in a field in the Town of Stockton.

The Portage County sheriff’s office says the owner of the cattle has been working with a local veterinarian and it’s believed the animals died from the IBR/BVD virus. The virus can cause respiratory and reproductive problems.

WSAW reports samples from the dead cows have been sent to Madison for testing.

Authorities say there is no threat to humans or other animals.

Facts, stick to the facts and be patient. Im not a farmer, so my views are based on logic I hope.

The cattle are dead. Presumption points to an illness or virus as mentioned earlier. So what happens when livestock get fatal viruses? I will tell you, they quaranteen a specific area round the farm and kill everything in that radius.

So out of the presumption that a virus was to blame, the fact that normal procedures havnt been followed to safegaurd other farmers in the area leads me to believe that a virus was not responsible.

Now lets look a animal husbandry. Farmers dont see sheep or cows they see the $ or £ sign. Each animal is an amount of cash. Does anyone know a farmer who can throw money away due to neglecting his livestock? I dont.

The only info that can be safely stored in logic is that the livestock is dead. The rest of the jigsaw is yet to come so lets watch, wait and see.

Good find! Buffalo and cows are hearty - do you have any insight as to what they say might have caused this incident?

Have they ruled out electrocution? I know a farmer who lost 50 cattle when lightning struck a field, the cows didn't look burned or damage but it must have stopped their hearts. Freak occurence, very weird but he witnessed it himself.

This is another slight possibility. Very unlikely, especially in winter in Wisconsin, but I have seen multiple cattle killed by 1 lightning strike before. Problems are 200 cattle, that is a huge number, and winter time doesn't have much groundstrike lightning. There is the occasional cloud lightning, but very, very little lightning that hits the ground.

I highly doubt it was lightning, but at least it is another plausible explanation.

Cows die!

Ahh this is easy, the cows kept thinking the grass was tastier on the other side, but after numerous attempts they realized it was impossible to reach. So the cows began to wonder, why has our farmer forsaken us? Doomed us to this ordinary grass yet taunts us with that beautiful green grass that lies just over the fence.. They eventually lost faith and committed mass suicide.
Another Case Solved by that mysterious skinny guy.
