Cow rescued from manure trough by fire-fighters

On Tuesday, firefighters were called out to the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of New Hampshire to rescue a cow that had fallen into a manure trough and was stuck. Durham Fire Chief Dave Emanuel said the cow had fallen between the grates into the trough that carries cow manure out of the barn. Ruby, the two-year-old Holstein cow, weighs 1,200 pounds, and they had to use an elevator to rescue her. She then needed a thorough wash.
