This certainly won't make "WorkSaver" but it was an interesting morning to say the least. About 4 and half days ago, 7 young heifers were killed by lightning after seeking shelter under a tall cedar elm tree. The tree was struck by lighting and the electricity traveled down to the ground. A couple of the cows had their hooves blown off. Never seen that before. The temps have been in the mid 90's since they were killed. Not a pleasant job site to say the least. Thank God for enclosed cabs but I still won't be eating beef for a while. I don't think I could have imagined the number of flies, maggots, and the amount of stench coming from this pile of cows. I had to move them about a mile so they could be burned. Yep, I loaded them on my equipment trailer...it still stinks after 10 minutes at the car wash and a hundred gallons of water sprayed on it at the ranch. It's hard to tell but the second to the last picture is where they laid down for the storm and never got up.. I will have more pictures next week after we download the other camera. Poor cows. A few more days and they were mooving..
