Baton Rouge, LA – The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) Brand Commission and the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office are looking for information regarding 10 head of cattle reported missing on September 21, 2020. The calves were last seen on a Dewberry Road property in the Leleux community.

Anyone with information is urged to call the LDAF Crimestoppers number at 800-558-9741 or the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-893-0871.
