Cows Stolen From Dairy Farm In California

7/16/2013 6:30 PM ET

The owner of a farm in Stanislaus County, California is looking for answers after 26 cows were stolen from his dairy farm last week.

Local television station KMAX-TV reports that in the last week, thieves have stolen 26 one-month-old heifers - 10 in one night, and 16 over the course of another night.

"The workers do their best to keep these things fed and well-maintained, and you've got these thieves that come out here and they just steal them," said Steve Belo, who works on the farm. He added that each cow is worth approximately $600.

"These calves are our future," he continued. "Without these animals, we don't have a future for our dairy farms."

Belo plans to add surveillance cameras to the farm in the near future.
