physics (projectile motion)

A cow on a trebuchet is catapulted toward a castle wall. The cow is released with an inital velocity of 50 m/s at a 60 degree angle above the horizontal. At its release the cow is 8 m above the ground. The castle wall is 100 m from the trebuchet and the ground level of the castle wall 60 m tall. The ground where the castle wall sits is 20 m higher than the ground from which the trebuchet sits. Where does the cow land? (How far beyond the castle wall, or how far short does it land, or does it hit the wall?)
