Crazy cows - we're talking cows with an attitude here, not "mad cows"

Do we have crazy cows? Generally not. All of our cows are nice and calm for most of the year but some of them can go a bit crazy at certain times - most notably during or after calving.

Cows can also go a bit crazy during milking if they are scared or in pain for some reason. i.e. the heifers (young cows) are very nervous during their first ever milkings, and cows with sore teats have a tendency to kick out as you approach them to put the milking cups on.
