Butterfield, with the aid of noighbbrs, took after them and tried to head thorn off. The steers then stamped* ed in all directions, through fences and into corn And soy bean fields. Finally 50 mett, IS Of them on horseback, got into the roundup, and a plane Was used to help spot the animals. Eleven steers were found dead in one ditch soon after the stampede, others were found down with the heat and attempts to revive them were futile. The Bullerfield farm is one mile west of the Pilot Grove store, only a few miles east of the East Chain Consolidated school. Thirteen of the animals are still missing, and coupled with the ones found dead or died later, Butterfield's total loss seems likely to be around $5,000.
