Eldest of to uni.

Recommended Posts

Our eldest is off to uni next week. She is such a city girl, her main concern is a field of cows near her digs.

" Dad, are those cows dangerous? "

" no, not really, they are freisians, fairly placid. The bulls can be dangerous, as it's a dairy breed. So the farmer will probably run them with a placid beef bull, like a Hereford or Charolais ."

"THERE ARE DIFFERENT BREEDS OF COW!?"

Most  people killed each year by animals in the UK are killed by cows. Hard to believe I know, mainly it is unintentional on the Cows part they are just very heavy and clumsy.

most victims are farm workers who get crused agains a fence or wall but walkers can be trampled when crossing fields and the cows run across to be freindly, so crossing a field with cows in stay near the wall/fence so you can jump over if they get come towards you.

Felt there would be  posts about how dangerous cows are. Virtually any animal weighing half a ton can kill. I would still class a cow as a fairly placid, non aggressive animal. Certainly not going to freak out my eldest by saying they kill three people a year, although I actually think her main concern is  them attacking her in her flat!
