CHILTON (WKOW) -- A farmer in northeast Wisconsin is using an unconventional method to keep his cows productive. He is sending them to the chiropractor.
Lucky is one of the cows on the Meyer Dairy Farm in Chilton. She injured her hip a few weeks ago.
Lucky's owner, Larry Meyer, called in a veterinarian who specializes in chiropractic care for animals.
Meyer says, "She got up on her step stool and manipulated the spine kind of like what you would do at a regular chiropractic visit for a person where they go up and down your spine and find areas that are misaligned."
Now the seven-year-old, 1,800 pound cow is feeling better.
The cost for one chiropractic session for a cow ranges between $50-$75.
