Two people working on cows at the U.W. get their care benefits retracted after ten beef cows die because of neglect.

A spokesperson from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences says the cattle were fed poor quality hay and corn silage over the winter and were left malnourished. Six cows died of complications during birth and the other four died of malnutrition.

A worker stepped down from his position and had his animal care privileges permanently revoked.

The researcher also had his privileges withdrawn for at least one year.
