Officials in Adair County are still gathering information before they decide if they’ll file charges in the death of around 150 head of cattle found near Orient. The cattle are owned by Great Lakes Cattle and Credit Company of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Adair County officials says the company contracted with Johnson Farm Company to feed and care for the cattle. They says Johnson Farm Company is owned by trucker driver Harold Johnson of Orient, who left his 22-year-old son in charge of the cattle. A Great Lakes representative went to see the cattle and says they were not watered or fed properly. Adair County officials are awaiting reports from the D-N-R and the Ag Department to present to the county attorney to determine if charges will be filed.
