A MAN trampled by a bull at Stanthorpe on Saturday afternoon is in intensive care at Toowoomba Hospital.

The 65-year-old man was airlifted to the hospital by the RACQ CareFlight helicopter.

RACQ CareFlight air crewman Ben Trollope said the man was knocked down after being hit from behind by the bull while working on his property.

"The man sustained several rib fractures down the left side of his body," he said.

"We treated him on site at his property before flying him to the Toowoomba Base Hospital for further treatment.

"He was airlifted in a stable condition."

A Toowoomba Hospital spokesman said the man was in a stable condition.

"The plan is to transfer him to the ward (today)," he said.
