Cows in northeast Brainerd garage recovering, will be moved soon
Freckles the cow was near death when she was brought into a northeast Brainerd garage.
Pregnant and suffering from a severe case of pneumonia, the 1-year-old, 600-pound Holstein Angus cross needed shelter from the extreme cold sweeping over the area.
The cow’s owners, Lisa Nebel and her husband, usually keep their cattle on Nebel’s mom’s farm a few miles outside of Brainerd. But when Freckles fell ill, unable to walk, Nebel needed a place to give the cow 24-hour care.
