Fun Cow Facts


Hereford
Thrifty and enterprising Benjamin Tomkins of Herefordshire, England, is considered to be the father of the familiar red-bodied, white-faced Hereford breed. He wished to establish beef cattle that were hardy, had early maturity, and had a nutural aptitude to grow and gain from grass and grain--traits that are of primary importance in the Hereford breed today.

A cow eats about 100 pounds of grass and produces about 65 pounds of manure each day.
A cow can detect odors up to five miles away.
It takes 340 squirts to fill a milk pail. A cow gives nearly 200,000 glasses of milk in her lifetime.
Cows can live up to 25 or 30 years.
One cow in the herd bows to no one. She has unrestricted access to the best pasture, the deepest shade, or the choicest spot in the milking line-up.
