A Park County District Court judge has barred a rancher who had dead animals on his property from owning, managing, controlling or possessing cattle in the county.
Rancher Vernon E. Wagner said Monday he plans to appeal.
Colorado agriculture department staff last year seized 379 cattle from Wagner, saying they had found about 140 dead cattle on his land.
Last week, a judge ordered a permanent injunction barring Wagner from having cattle, saying there was evidence he hadn't provided adequate nutrition for them.
A court-appointed receiver is caring for his surviving cattle until they are sold.
Wagner continues to raise horses. The 78-year-old says his land has lush grass and water for cattle. He contends he was targeted because he has 130,000 acres that others want to control.
