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 native home of the Tarentaise cow is very mountainous; no other French cattle graze in an area with as high an altitude and such dramatic changes in elevation.
- Occasionally, a red-spotted Holstein will be born. Red is the recessive color.
- The Guernsey breed was started on the Isle of Guernsey by a group of monks about a thousand years ago!
- Old cows in India have their own nursing home.
- The Chianina is the largest cow (or bull for that matter).
- 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.
- Whole milk contains about 4% fat. Low-fat milk contains 1 or 2 percent fat. Skim milk has less than 1/2 percent fat.
- A 1,000 pound cow makes about 10 tons of manure a year, on average.
