TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) - Stanislaus County authorities are investigating the theft of 26 calves from a dairy farm near Turlock.

Sheriff's officials say 16 of the calves vanished from the farm in Hilmar, Calif. on Monday between 2:30 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. The others were stolen two weeks ago.

Thieves on Monday also walked off with 20 bales of hay from a neighboring farm.

The missing livestock are month-old female Jersey calves that weigh around 80 pounds and are valued at $1,000 each.

Farm managers say cattle at the farm are tracked with microchips, but calves are marked with plastic tags only.
