When crews arrived on scene, a tractor and a landrover was used to take crews and their equipment to the cliff edge and three firefighters have been lowered down to the animal.
The rescueres are using lift gear lines and safety and height and confined spaces pack under the guidance of a technical rescue and safety officer.
Crews are attempting to get a harness on the bullock however slow progress is being made as the cow was being un-cooperative.
