EXETER, Neb. (AP) - A 30-year-old man has been a charged in connection with the discovery of hundreds of dead and ailing or neglected cattle at his farm in southern Nebraska’s Fillmore County.
County court records say Aaron Ogren is charged with one count of theft, two counts of prohibited sale of livestock and 26 counts of cruelty to animals. His bail was set Wednesday at $300,000. The records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

The cattle in poor condition were taken to a nearby ranch for care.
