Sometimes we all come in, sit down at our computers, and wish for something silly that will make us laugh and take a good deep breath.  So that’s what this week’s article in the Livestock Section is all about.  A little breather and a chuckle.

I Am Cow

If you’d like to sign along, here are the lyrics too!

I am Cow, hear me moo
I weigh twice as much as you
And I look good on the barbecue
Yogurt, curd, cream cheese and butter’s
Made from liquid from my udders
I am Cow, I am Cow, Hear me moo (moo)

I am Cow, eating grass
Methane gas comes out my ass
And out my muzzle when I belch
Oh, the ozone layer is thinner
From the outcome of my dinner
I am Cow, I am Cow, I’ve got gas

I am Cow, here I stand
Far and wide upon this land
And I am living everywhere
From B.C. to Newfoundland
You can squeeze my teats by hand
I am Cow, I am Cow, I am Cow
I am Cow, I am Cow, I am Cow!

Rachel's interest in sustainable agriculture and grazing has deep roots in the soil. She's been following that passion around the world, working on an ancient Nabatean farm in the Negev, and with farmers in West Africa's Niger. After returning to the US, Rachel received her M.S. and Ph.D. in agronomy and soil science from the University of Maryland. For her doctoral research, Rachel spent 3 years working with Maryland dairy farmers using management intensive grazing. She then began her work with grass farmers, a source of joy and a journey of discovery.

    Sorry, it’s a heifer in your tank

  2. Doug says:

    This sounds like something from the good folks from the “heifer in the tank” from the University of Alberta. They do a lot of funny stuff about animal agriculture.

  3. Rae Haddow says:

    This is great! It reminds me of another great song – “Cows Around” by Corb Lund – great lyrics!
