Day 42: MOO MOO COW!!!

















 Hello again audience, sorry for the late blog again this illness has decided to stick around for another day! Today's pictures are of one of the cutest calf and it was so friendly. In the morning of the field trip I went to take pictures of it on my own when no one was around and it did not leave me alone when I was taking pictures of other animals :) 

I think a good question to ask is, are killing animals like this for food right? in my honest opinion I would have to say yes as it is how nature is other animals eat other animals and that is how things work, but I think the way we do it is not fair. the animals are born into a life of slaughter and don't have a chance to get away like in nature. 

Sorry for the short blog today but I have barley enough energy to keep my eyes open! I would like to thank all the 10 people who are now following me! I am so happy that I have reached double figures in followers thank you so much! I hope you all have a good weekend I know I will be enjoying it with my family which I have not seen in 3 months! I hope all the English people have got there mothers day presents sorted already! thanks for reading and I hope to see you again tomorrow!  

Now some random facts! 

Cattle (colloquially cows) are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified collectively as Bos primigenius. Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, and as draft animals (pulling carts, plows and the like). Other products include leather and dung for manure or fuel. In some countries, such as India, cattle are sacred. It is estimated that there are 1.3 billion cattle in the world today. In 2009, cattle became the first livestock animal to have its genome mapped.
