Nine pregnant cows and six calves have been stolen from a farm near the Border between Friday evening, and the early hours of Saturday morning, November 10.

The cattle were stolen from the Armagh Road out of Dundalk on the northern side of the border.

The owners of the cattle believe the cattle were taken in a large trailer at night time and have offered a significant reward for information leading to the recovery of the animals.

The cows are Charolais, Red Limousin and Belgium blue breeds.
