Herd Mentality

Cows are curious and friendly animals. They like to be in groups, not alone, and that’s why you see them in a herd. Like many animals, cows establish a pecking order – quickly. With change, the pecking order realigns, which can be stressful for the cows.

General Info

Cows spend about six hours eating and eight hours chewing cud per-day. They will spend around four hours a day sleeping, taking very short naps. The girls sleep laying down while chewing cud.

Cows have almost total 360-degree panoramic vision, and they can see color! Cows have a great nose and can smell up to six miles away.

Cows need to have recently given birth in order to produce milk. Cows are bred at approximately 15 months and the gestation period is nine months, the same as a human. Cows like cool temperatures – 50°-60° F – milk production goes down in high temperatures.

Feeding Cows

What a cow eats is very important for her digestion, milk production and milk quality. Crystal Farm has formulated a special blend of feed to meet all the needs associated with the health and wellbeing of our cows, as well as for maximum milk production. Their feed consists of a mixture of:

  • Corn silage
  • Sweet corn silage
  • Haylage
  • Corn
  • Soy Hulls
  • Whey Permeate
  • Canola Meal
  • Protein Mix
  • Wet cake

Cows are “ruminants” – meaning they have four digestive areas in the stomach – not four stomachs! The cow digests plant-based food by initially softening it within her first, known as the rumen, then regurgitating the semi-digested mass, now known as cud, and chewing it again. The process of re-chewing the cud to further break down plant matter and stimulate digestion is called “ruminating,”

There are a few sayings that have been derived from cows such as:

“Digest an idea”

“Chew the cud”

Ruminate = ponder or think about!

There are more than 250 beef cattle breeds in the world and 60 percent of them are found in the United States of America. Today, beef cattle production businesses are as popular as dairy production businesses. Throughout the world, the United States of America is among the largest exporters of beef. Undoubtedly, beef cattle are the beauty of any farm and considering the different types of breeds, they indeed are unique in their own ways

A combination of breeds or any specific breed in any breeding program has a considerable effect on the profitability and efficiency of the cattle production industry. Each breed has its own reproductive efficiency, growth rate, maternal abilities, and because of these differences, the end product specification varies from one breed to another.

The production cost and overall nutritional requirements are entirely dependent on the type of breed as these are related to the size of the animal and the rate of growth. Therefore, in cross-breeding programs, it is essential to select suitable breeds.

The cattle producers select the breeds for their production businesses according to their market value and rare characteristics in order to gain greater profits. Some of the factors that cattle producers keep in mind while selecting the beef cattle breeds include the market demand of the breed, availability of pure-bred seed-stock, its cost, quality and quantity of available feed staff, and its production system.
