EEk! Cows? And I thought when my squirrels do damage it's bad. I hope someone can help. I think branches can be rooted but their caudex is not as pretty.

I'm so sorry this happened but I admit I am chuckling here, I will never complain about my cats knocking something over again. Rolling on the floor laughing

Welcome! to ATP Clairannette.

If that is a pretty fresh cut you could tape it back; it might 'graft' itself back onto itself. Just use some electrical tape or something similar.

I agree with dutchlady and if it's not fresh then you can root the broken branch in sand(most of the time).
Put the cows in the freezer after thanking them for fertilizing your plant..
