Mooving the extra mile for customers

Curtis, NE, Rural Carrier LouAnn Wood

As Curtis, NE, Rural Carrier LouAnn Wood drove along her route following a heavy rainstorm, she came across a cow lying on the ground. The animal didn’t budge as she approached and she assumed it had succumbed to the storm. Wood owns cattle on her own property and felt concerned that there might be a calf somewhere without its mother.

With no cell service in the canyon, she continued along the road until she reached the next mailbox. There, she asked an individual about the cow. The person denied ownership, but suggested that it might belong to a neighbor. When Wood later exited the canyon, she called that neighbor and told her the bad news about the cow. The woman thanked Wood for the information and called her own husband to have him check out the situation.

The embankment the cow had been standing on gave way due to the heavy rain and it fell down in the process. Unable to get back up, the animal remained on the ground until its owner rendered aid.

The customer called Wood later on and told her that the cow is doing well and is back with its calf. She also thanked the concerned carrier for the information and for watching out for her customer’s animals.

“LouAnn is a great, conscientious carrier who is very good at her job!” said Curtis Postmaster Susan Kugler.
