A veterinarian sedated the cow while firefighters removed the iron sheeting from the roof so a crane could be used to hoist the bovine.

The cow did not appear to be seriously injured and was returned to a paddock to rest.

"The cow is now resting up while she recovers from her little adventure," the post said. "We hope she is up and moooooving about soon."
