It’s Cow Appreciation Day! Let’s Party!


July 15, 2013 by dairycarrie

Today is National Cow Appreciation Day! WOOOOOOOOT! Yes, I know that Chick-Fil-A celebrated on Friday, and I did this post last week… but I was told that it was today so that’s what I am going with. Besides cows are awesome enough to be celebrated every day anyways!

I’m fairly certain that anybody who reads this blog knows that I really, truly and deeply appreciate my cows and everything that they give us but if you need some proof…

Kissing a cow Hugging a cow Kissing a calf

…There you have it. I hug my cows, I kiss my cows, I care about my cows, I appreciate my cows!

Because I think today should be the kind of day where we have a party and a party means snacks and snacks mean cheese, I am going to share my snacks with you!

Tell me why you appreciate cows! I will pick one winner on Friday and the winner will receive an assortment of my favorite cheeses. I’m not talking a little cheese either! The winner will receive no less than a HECK of a lot of cheese.

(This is a representation of the cheese the winner will receive, not the actual cheese. This photo is several months old and this cheese was eaten shortly after the photo was taken)

You have until this Friday, 7/19/13 at 8am to get your answer in! I will read the answers out loud to the cows and they will look at me like I should shut up and scratch them or bring them food or do something other than stand around talking. Then I will pick my favorite answer and crown that person the winner, winner, cheesy dinner!

    We have beef cows. I LOVE my cows. I appreciate them. I appreciate what cows do for the whole world. Provide nutrition, help people farm their land, lift peoples spirits when you see babies sleeping or racing around with their tails in the air on a sunny spring day! And nothing better ( well, ok there is 🙂 ) then a sloppy cows kiss and dirt under your finger nails from a good scratching! 🙂
    Have a beautiful day!

  3. A Cheese contest? I’m in! And I can’t believe I missed cow appreciation day. dammit.

    I hope this isn’t untenable and obscene – but you said provide an answer.

    Dad got shit on and kicked by a cow he had to hand milk – in that order – cow went “BRRRRAP” and before he knew it, “uhh…I waz just tryin’ to milk her! *BANG!* I’ve not experienced it from a cow, but apparently I come from good people – “let me get straightened out here, that Holstein…what’d I do?”

    He had a farmer, name of Rudish, near as I can guess phonetically, who never let him complain.

    As it used to be, way the hell back when he was 16 – do the math. He left home after his mom died in a fire (I’d have to do some record searching here, but you’re welcome to. Ecorse, MI) and Atlas Varnish (nee Cujo’s Varnish, Jesus’ profound Varnish,) etc came to mind for the owner.

    (Reason I say this – it was whatever damned varnish you wanted at the time, and he was kid labor back in the early ’40’s doing it – fill the can, label it with their shit…important lesson. Read the USDA labels on meat products; see where the hell they came from.)

    I still want rent-a-goat to eat everything they can find and give them not-screwed-up grass.

    I go out of my way to get Mom marked down cheese – few interesting ones. She likes cheese. I’m happy spending my cash for a damned parbake pizza from somewhere.

    As for the cows – it’s like watching M*A*S*H – “would you change the bedpans?” – I already do.

    Mom loves cheese, I love cows, and legalizing goats to feed on crabgrass or whatever is nigh impossible.

    It just sucks that you need a permit to let moocows wander into your backyard. Indians – with their dubious religion – may have a better idea.

    I’ll go use a mulching mower Friday if it doesn’t rain – waste of good cow-feed.

  5. […] While her posts address tough farm issues, she also uses social media to agvocate with other bloggers via AgChat. Her posts also tackle broader issues like the Panera Bread “EZ Chicken” campaign last summer. And she gives her followers a taste for the lighter side with recipes, “welcome to the world” photos of new calves on the the farm, and posts that simply extol the virtues of cheese. […]
