Thieves have left a Sheffield dairy farmer baffled after stealing his slowest vehicle.
The owner of the Our Cow Molly dairy farm has been left confused after thieves stole a farm utility vehicle last week.
It is reported that at around 3.15am on Wednesday 16 February, two unknown offenders took the vehicle from the back of Our Cow Molly’s property on Cliffe Hill.
The distinctive vehicle is a dark green Kawasaki MULE PRO-MX and is described as looking like a golf buggy.
Eddie Andrews, owner of the business, said: “I’m sure the thieves were thoroughly disappointed with their slow getaway as it’s not fast & sporty like a quad bike.
“It’s really unusual, there are very few about, so useless to sell for parts, and it’s only farmers that use them.
“There’s lots of great CCTV of the thieves, and it’s been circulated nationally via National Farmer Union to all farmers to report it if they are offered one
“I think the police have got a great chance of recovering the vehicle as it’s really slow”
The vehicle is estimated to be worth around £12,000.
This disappointing news comes after the farm was recently featured on an episode of the BBC’s ‘Countryfile’, which Andrews described “as a fantastic opportunity to show what we’re doing as an innovative Made-in-Sheffield business”.
