  1. I hate to introduce a note of brutal reality here but this looks like veal on the hoof. I can think of no other logical reason why it would be tethered at the side of the road by itself. Waiting for the truck.
    Maybe it’s different in your part of the world.

    1. This is one of about 10 cow hutches in the front part of the farm. The idea is to separate them from their mother for a short time to help them be independent and get along better with the herd. They are all dairy cows so no veal for anyone. Maybe I should have researched the exact reason for these little houses but I assure you that the cows are as happy as cows can be.


      1. So it really is different in your part of the world. The chain confused me. I’m not used to seeing farm animals tied up. Down here they all go to calf kindergarten together in a barn or field, depending on the weather. Yours get individual cells with room service. Central heating? Free Wifi? I can see this one has its own mailbox in the background.

        1. I found an article for you Mike about someone else who thought the little houses were veal crates. I’d post the link but its all ads. Thanks for your feedback and remember to drink all your milk.
