The lawsuit accused Land O’Lakes Purina Feed of selling defective feed to the Kastes, who own a dairy farm in Tillamook. The Kastes claimed that after eating the feed, many of their cows fell ill or died as a result. A jury agreed, and awarded the plaintiffs $750,000 in damages plus attorney fees. The Oregon Court of Appeals rejected all of Land O’Lakes’ arguments for lesser payment.
