ST. JOHN, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Department of Agriculture is helping investigate three separate thefts of cattle in Stafford County.
The department's division of animal health says three groups of cattle were stolen between Dec. 3 and Dec. 4.
The first group included 11 heifers, all solid black with black and white faces. The cattle had tags in one ear stamped with "PLLC," and brands on their right hip.
The second group was 10 mixed steers/heifers that were not branded. Those cattle were black, with black and white face, and eight of them had yellow and white tags. The third group included two Charolais with no brand, one steer and one heifer with yellow/white tags.
