I made this video a couple weeks ago, when the ground finally dried up just enough that we could let the cows out into their pasture.
Now don’t be fooled too much by this, within an hour the majority of the girls were back in the barn laying in their comfy stalls. I guess they are spoiled with the best of both worlds! We live in Wisconsin and trust me when I say that the cows do NOT want to be outside in the winter. They also really prefer to be inside their nice cool barn when it gets too hot out. A lot of folks seem to think that cows being inside is really bad but I don’t think that we should expect our animals to live outdoors in all kinds of weather unless we are also willing to give up conveniences like fans, air conditioning, heat or a roof over our head to protect us from the rain.
Inside or outside, I don’t think anyone can deny that our cows are happy and healthy!
