Cows are one of the most popular domesticated animals in many countries around the world. They bring a number of benefits to those that have them, but the surprising thing is that they are a lot more sophisticated than most people give them credit for.
They are a lot like people in that they are very social. They will automatically gather into a herd and will form bonds with some of the cows, while avoiding others.
