Fun Cow Facts
Did You Know?
Under natural conditions, baby cows stay with their mother until weaning at 8 to 11 months. Heifer and bull calves are equally attached to their mothers in the first few months of life. Beef-calves reared on the range suckle an average of 5.0 times every 24 hours with an average total time of 46 min spent suckling. Zebu cattle (Bos indicus) have shown that the cow weans her calves over a 2-week period, but after that, she continues to show strong attachment to her offspring and will choose them more often for grooming and as grazing partners for at least 4–5 years.
