Othe then the obvious of potental broken bones from falls, running into things or stepping in holes, the primary problem is stress and overheating. If the cow is close to calving it can cause premature birth or in early bred cows abortion. If the have calves the youngsters can get trampled or knocked down and stepped on, cows udders can be damaged from bangin around while running or torn from hangin up on brush, rocks, fence, etc. This is just running for the dogs entertainment. If the dog is under control and you're running them with working dogs it is less of a problem but it's still better to walk them then run them.

I have a zero tolerance policy if dogs are caught chasing cattle. They die then and there and nary a word is ever said afterwards. Warning neighbors simply identifies you as the reason that Rover didn’t come home next time. Zero tolerance.
