Officials are investigating the deaths of more than 40 cattle on a farm south of Fedora.

The Miner County Sheriff's Office says 42 heifers and 1 bull died between Nov. 1 and Nov. 7 on the farm.

Authorities say the deaths are suspicious, but a cause isn't clear. Tissue samples from dead cows have been sent to Iowa, and water samples from the farm have been dispatched to North Dakota.
