I have been fairly lucky mostly minor bumps, breaks, bruises, and concussions.

Last summer a cow rolled over on my leg and gave me a partially torn MCL. Had to wear a brace for about 8 months.

tore the anteria cruciate liagasment clean off the bone,chipped the kneecap causing knee to be unable to bend and displaced and tore cartlidge under kneecap all while trying to give a heifer a needle.(2003)resulting in a complete knee reconstruction.

in 1989 got wrapped around a pole in a walk thru resulting in the muscles across my lower back torn by a kicking first calf heifer.

various broken fingers as well as a chipped elbow milking in herringbones.

tossed by a bull in 1992 against a railing resulting in a bruised leg while moving bulls from pen to pen in switzerland.

Re: Accidents


Have had a lot of minor accidents and injury's like bruised fingers and broken ribs. Worse accident was 6 years ago, when I was kicked in the head by a cow, was unconscious for some hour's and don't remember anything from first 18-20 hour's. Jaw broken in two places and 5 teeth missing, cheekbone broken, fractured skull in 3 places and a small bleeding on the brain. Had to stay at hospital for 23 days. Today I still have daily headache need to take pills 3 time a day, becomes easily tired and have problems with concentration.

I ran my index and middle fingers on my right hand through a sprocket and chain, broke them both and almost pinched them off. I also shot a nail through my thumb.

Re: Accidents


 emoticon emoticon A relative of mine is on two months sick leave after severely damaging the middle finger of his right hand. They were lifting a downer cow and he was attaching the harness to the telehandler.... but the guy driving it engaged the locking mechanism too soon.... OUCH !!!! One has to look at the silver lining.... a few seconds earlier and he might have lost most of his hand....

Re: Accidents


Many years ago, a mate of mine was helping his Dad, trying to drop a trailer off of a stuck pick-up hitch. He was jumping on the trailer draw-bar whilst his Dad was working the hydraulics in the tractor.

Dad lifted the hydraulics right up at the wrong time and took the tops off of both his sons big toes, one at the first joint, the other slightly further up.
