Did you know that cows are very fascinating? There are many reasons why I feel this way. The first reason is that cows produce milk that you can drink and the milk can also be turned into cheese. Next, they graze when they eat grass, so they don’t eat one patch of grass all at once. Then cows regurgitate their food and chew their cud. Cows need to be milked twice a day. Finally, cows can produce 125 pounds of saliva a day. There are so many other interesting facts about cows! But these are my favorite.

I have three stuffed cows, a windup one and a few more. The first time I came face to face with a cow was when I went pumpkin picking and I have loved them ever since.
