Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures.
Thomas de Quincey

This webpage is part of a series that I hope will portray the fact that farm animals, just like any other animal, are beautiful creatures. Few people appreciate cattle for the magnificent animals they are. Like all farm animals cattle are sentient beings, cows are attentive loving mothers  There are over 800 breeds of cattle world wide.  Look at the photographs below aren't they truly beautiful creatures.

These cows in Northumbria came right up to the fence as we photographed them, cows can be very friendly and curious creatures if you approach them quietly.

The human body has no more need for cows' milk than it does for dogs' milk, horses' milk, or giraffes' milk.
