Happy Cow Greeting Card





This happy cow greeting card is very important to me because I really love cows, I love the shape of their faces. I also find them, such sweet creatures. This guy was going to be part of a series of paintings to change the way people saw farm animals. Not just food, they feel happiness, love, friendship and pain. I am not against eating meat, however, the industrial farming is awful. And how mankind got to that point is insane to me.

Here are some interesting cow facts!

  • Cows are red-green colourblind. In a bullfight, its the waving of the cape that attracts the bull, not the red colour
  • Cows can hear lower and higher frequencies better than humans.
  • An average dairy cow weighs about 1,200 pounds.
  • Cows actually do not bite grass; instead, they curl their tongue around it.
  • They have almost total 360-degree panoramic vision.
  • Cows have a single stomach, but four different digestive compartments.
  • Cows only have teeth on the bottom
  • A Holstein’s spots are like a fingerprint. No two cows have exactly the same pattern of black and white spots. They are all different
  • The average cow produces 70 lbs. of milk. That’s 8 gallons per day!
  • Domestic cows are descendants of wild oxen known as aurochs, and they were first domesticated in southeast Turkey around 10,500 years ago. From the original 80 progenitors, an estimated 1.3 billion cattle exist today.
  • Cows share 80 percent of their genes with humans.
  • Just like dogs, cows enjoy a good rubdown, whether on the head, neck or back.
  • There are over 800 different cattle breeds recognized worldwide.
