Friendly Cow
« on: October 16, 2013, 11:39:23 PM »

Cows over the fence next to the river today. Handed some grass to one, they normally run away even if you get slightly close but this one came up to me and ate from my hand........I still have my hand  ;)









The cow had No 1 on it's ear....maybe that's why he is so friendly.....haha

Holsteins, my dads least favorite cow. (Milked them for too many years)  They do make a good steak though. Lol

They're called Fresians over here. Looks like a young bottle fed heifer Rhys. If you can get your hands on some molasses or treacle, she'll lick it from your fingers.

i learned something new on this thread.  don't remember ever hearing of the word "treacle" before.  had to google it to find out.  thanks guys!  not sure i will ever hear it again, or use it in a sentence, but enjoyed the lesson.

btw rhys, that lil heifer is very sweet looking.  and not in a steak kind of way.  something trusting in those eyes.  must be love.   ;D ;D ;D ;D

They have teddy bear ears and big eyes, but you will learn how annoying they are when you have to milk them. Dodging pee and crap, have them kick you and knock the cups off on a freezing morning. Trust me...you see the sirloin in them then. Treacle is an english product. Not as dark as molasses but more golden. Farmers mix it with grain to supplement feed during the winter. Also big blocks of mineral licks. The cows lick it as the walk back to the field.

How to Use Cattle Ear Tags for Identification

 How to Use Cattle Ear Tags for Identification thumbnail
Each ear tag is a unique identifier for each head of cattle.
Today, it is the law that cattle are tracked from birth to slaughter to help protect both the health of each animal and the health of the public that will eventually purchase the products made from that animal. For this reason, cattle ranchers use ear tags to mark each and every head of cattle with a unique identifier that allows them to track every aspect of the animals' lives, including age, health status, veterinary treatments, feeding schedules, relocations, and sales. Many of these tags also contain Radio Frequency Identification Devices or RFIDs that help to track cattle electronically.

funny you should mention a rat rhys.  a few days ago it was lightly raining again as i was driving to the grocery store, when a very frightened field mouse/rat went scurrying across the old 2 lane road i was using.  there was no one behind me so i slowed down for the little bugger so it could cross safely to higher ground.  we had been having a lot of rain and the fields were starting to flood in parts.

so, anyway, that's my rat story.  perhaps you could set the rat on the lil heifer's shoulders.  that would be a nice pic for youtube.   ;D ;D ;D

When I was younger we had a small farm and had some chickens and went to feed them one day whatever rubbish I was feeding them called Chicken feed. Opened the bag and put my hand in to scoop out a tin full and a rat was in the bag that go through the other side by chewing into the bag and ran over my hand. I think I jumped out of my skin and there is now a large hole in the roof  ;D ;D ;D

There was a mouse on my bed the other evening.  It did not survive, but I will spare you the grisly details.  I'll only admit to being largely responsible, though I share the guilt with the makers of roach spray and glue traps.
