Fencing and livestock


Neighbors cows keep coming on our property due to failing division fence. We have no livestock. Do we have any obligation to maintain or fix this faulty fence since we don't own livestock? If we notify him about the roaming cows and he chooses not to fetch his cows, what recourse do we have? The last time I called him (about 2 years ago) and told him about the cows on our property, he said he'd spoken with his lawyer and was told we had to maintain half the fence. Haven't the laws changed since then?
