A 53-year-old Pongakawa woman is in a stable condition in the orthopaedic ward at Tauranga Hospital after being crushed by a cow last Wednesday.
She sustained spinal, leg and arm injuries.
Friend and Pukehina fire chief Errol Watts said she had surgery last week and was in a halo brace.
He believed more surgery was scheduled for this week.
The TrustPower TECT Rescue Helicopter was called to the farm after a cow jumped off the loading ramp of a cattle truck and landed on the woman.
