BTW cows do escape from time to time no matter what you do, it's just the nature of the business.
If you have ever raised dairy or beef cattle you have had the experience.

If you live in Kansas you have to expect a few cows now and then.

As matter is civil matter therefore you may first send demand notice and then file lawsuit if compensation is not paid.

Did you ever find out who the owner of the cattle were that were always out?

Essentially, Kansas is still an open grazing state for criminal law purposes, and a herd law state for civil cases, is my limited understanding. Many states have gradually closed off open grazing and some counties in open grazing states have limited open grazing.

In the civil case, the farmers lawyer or the farmers insurance company's lawyer may be asking questions about the drivers history (DUIs, registration, driving record). If the farmer was not negligent and an act of god occurred or someone else was negligent (fence falling on tree or hunter leaving gate open, for example), then the farmer may not be found liable.
