How to choose?
Marquise sent in a picture, and she explains, "On the far left is Arthur Easter
(dam is Hereford, sire is Limousin) born March 21, 2008, then my 150 pound
Bernese Mountain dog Bailey, me, then Albert Murray (purebred Murray Grey), who
[was] 5 years old on April 11, 2013."

Quick Cow facts:
Do cows have horns? Yes, female bovines almost always have horns. While
some cows are naturally polled (which means horn-free), the majority have their
horns removed when they are calves to make them safer to handle. So, YES,
cows can indeed have horns!
Oreo cookie cows? Yes, there are "belted" bovines out there!
More cow facts!
- The Watusi has the biggest horns -- the horns' spread can reach up to 8 feet across, and the diameter of the horns at the base can be as large as 8 inches.
- Milk is an emulsion (a suspension of small particles of one liquid in another where the two liquids do not mix) of fat and protein in water, along with dissolved sugars (carbohydrates), minerals, and vitamins.
- The average weight of a Milking Shorthorn cow is 1,400 pounds.
- In medium sized cattle, the rumen (one of the stomachs) by itself can hold between 25 to 75 gallons.
- It takes about 10 volumes of milk to get 1 volume of cheese.
- The Dexter started to become known in the 1700s when small farmers found the Dexter very practical for use on small plots of land. Later, the novelty of the cute, small bovines, made them popular on English estates.
- A cow's heart beats between 60 and 70 beats per minute.
- The mean gestation period for Holsteins is 279 days. The mean gestation period for Brown Swiss is 290 days.
