Farmer knocked out by cow

A farmer was found unconscious with a cut to his head near Te Kuiti today, apparently after being struck by a cow.

The 56-year-old was flown by Westpac Waikato Air Ambulance to Waikato Hospital's emergency department, where he was being assessed, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The rescue helicopter was called to the farm near Aria this morning where the farmer had been moving stock.

A rescue helicopter spokesman said a cow was believed to have caused the injury.
