Cow Trivia

I am tired of just of writing about quilting and such. And you really don't want me to write about housework or other cleaning, heck I don't even want to.

So I thought I would do something related to the farm 

How about Cow Trivia

* A cow has 32 teeth, and will chew about 40 - 50 times a minute.

*A cow will chew for up to 8 hours a day

* Cows move their jaws about 40,000 times a day

*Cows spend about 10 hours a day laying down.

* Cows will stand up and lay down about 14 times a day.

*Cows can sleep while they're standing.
( is that where cow tipping comes in)

* The first cow arrived in the U.S. in 1611 in Jamestown.

* A cow will consume about 40 lbs. of food in a day.

* The hamburger debuted at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis.

* Almost 2,000 quarter pound hamburgers can be made from the ground beef in one cow.

* Cows have an acute sense of smell and can detect odors up to 6 miles away.

Pretty cool facts.

This came from Oklahoma State University Master Cattleman Quarterly

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
