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.

The world's largest artificial cow, New Salem Sue, is in New Salem, North Dakota. She's 38 feet high and 50 feet long and weighs 12,000 pounds.
New Zealand produced a series of postage stamps in 19XX celebrating the major breeds of cattle in their country.
Harley-Davidson offered a special edition motorcycle in the 1990s featuring cowhide insets on the saddlebags and seats. The model quickly earned the moniker "Moo-Glide."
Lamborghini uses a charging bull in their identity. Company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini was a bullfighting aficionado, and was born under the sign of Taurus.
Even Vincent Van Gogh enjoyed cows, choosing them as the subject of his painting "Les Vache" or "The Cows."
