I've never seen cows move so fast!
Fast with life...beautiful.
We have a sign on the entry to each of our fields on our farm that reads,
The average human can run 18mph
The fastest human can run 25mph
Our cows can run over 30mph
Don't run, there is no point!
Obviously the sign continues to advise people on what to do when being chased and how not to provoke them
On our farm we have cattle that do the same as in the OP but we have come to the conclusion they act this way because they wouldn't otherwise be free
to " stretch their legs ". The same is with our calves. At six weeks old they are moved from one single pen with just enough room to turn to a larger
pen that is big enough for 6 to run about freely......jumping and kicking.....Yipeeeee
Great video, makes me smile and love my job more.
Glad they didn't go to slaughter and can live another good few years
Edit to add, and to not derail the thread. We recently had a calf born with two heads. A first in over 75 years on our farm.
