The Naming of a Cow
The easiest method to identify cows on a dairy farm is with numbers. But many farmers also choose to name their cows. Sometimes it’s a flowery name. Sometimes it is a sweet name. Some names come from baby naming books while others are geographic references. Then there are the names for physical or personality characteristics. One of the earliest Cow of the Month posts was Big Ears. This time, the calf’s name is Bucky…for obvious reasons.
Bucky’s under bite makes her endearing and you just can’t help but chuckle and say, “Awww… she is so cute!” She was such an active little calf that she didn’t want to stay still long enough for me to get a nice photo. But rest assured, she has no self-confidence issues about her looks. Beauty, or cuteness in this case, is in the eye of the beholder. And while some may think she is an unattractive calf, I think she’s adorable!
