A DAIRY farm worker killed in a quad bike crash had been searching for a missing cow, it emerged tonight.

Friends and colleagues paid tribute to Sam Bunting, 21, following the horror accident.

She was pronounced dead at the scene at Gerranton Farm near Castle Douglas, Dumfriesshire.

A spokesman for site operator JR Heuchan and Son said: “She went to look for a cow that hadn’t returned from the field and never came back.

“A fellow worker found her. It’s a shock.

“She was incredibly ex­perienced and had work­ed on farms for years.”

A co-worker said: “She was such a lovely person.

“We are so sorry that this has happened.”

Pals paid their respects to Sam online.

Michelle Morrison said: “Can’t believe you are gone, thoughts are with your family and friends.

“You will be sorely missed.”

Janet Turnbull wrote: “There is a huge hole in the lives of everyone who knew you that will never be repaired.”

And Kelly Walker said: “Such a lovely lady taken far too young.”

We told how cops were investigating Wednesday’s 11.15am tragedy.
