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.
