Junee police have joined forces with Riverina authorities in attempt to locate a group of Angus steers that were allegedly stolen on Wednesday.
The steers were taken from The Bulls Run Station on Old Narrandera Road, Currawarna between 5 pm on July 25, and 7 am on July 26.
Operator Mick Bryant described the act as “pretty disrespectful”.
“It’s been pretty dry and farming is a big job in itself already – to have to also deal with having cattle stolen is never ideal,” he said.
It is understood the animals were branded with a triangle punch hole in the offside ear, horizontal to the NLIS tag.
Inspector Rob Vergano has asked that the public contact police should they locate any steers with similar markings.
He has asked that the public remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour around rural roads.
“If you think a vehicle is on your road that shouldn’t be, whether day or night, record its number plate and contact Junee Police,” Inspector Vergano said.
“We will check its bona fides and follow up on the registered owner of the vehicle.
“Look out for your neighbours [and] report any suspicious activity.”
