FOUR women and two men have been charged with trespass and burglary offences after several West Australian farms were allegedly broken into over a six-month period.

Police say the crimes happened between August 2018 and February this year.

The alleged break-ins occurred at properties in Nambeelup, Hopeland, West Pinjarra, Benger and Mundijong.

A cow and dead pig were stolen in separate incidents in Pinjarra and Benger, but the cow was returned safely to its owners.

The accused, who range in age from 21 to 36, are scheduled to appear in Mandurah Magistrates Court on April 30.
