An 85-year-old man died after being trampled by a cow in west-central Minnesota.
The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office told BMTN that Delbert Horn, of rural Hewitt, died following the incident reported Sunday morning.
He was trying to tag a calf at a farm at 26998 County Highway 75 when he was trampled.
Despite the best efforts of emergency responders, he was declared dead.
Statistics show that farming is one of the most dangerous professions in the U.S.
The Centers for Disease Control says that in 2015, there was a rate of 19.2 deaths per 100,000 farmers or farm workers.
This past October in Douglas County, also in west-central Minnesota, a farmer was killed after being dragged by his own plow.
