Hundreds of cows are causing traffic problems on the Cobb Hwy

Close to 700 cattle grazed along the roadside, having been on the move for more than six months.

Drover Dick Bryant said the cattle had come from Garrison Feedlot near Swan Hill and were enjoying the lush green grass on roadsides in the district.

Mr Bryant, from Jerilderie, works with a team of  about 12 dogs to keep the cattle moving and ideally, off the road.

But he said the cattle have a mind of their own.

There are warning signs in place and drivers are asked to slow down and take care.

Last night, the Riv reported that a number of horses were loose on the Cobb Hwy near Milgate-Tatalia Rd.
