Name that cow?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help please with the breed of this calf. Have done some searches but cannot be certain. Photographed in Suffolk at the weekend. Thanks 😄.

Surely, it's Silly ... ;-)

 

Betsy would be a close second too...the cows in England are cuter for some reason...ours are just curious.

I'm not a cow expert, but isn't it a Holstein Friesian calf?

 

And he definitely looks like a 'Colin' to me! Or maybe 'Steve' - I've always wanted a pet cow called Steve! :D

if you know the location it is worth using Google street view to have a look at the farm entrance - some farms specialise in a particular breed and advertise that on their signage. Similarly, googling the farm may provide some information which points you in the right direction. The ear tag IDs the creature individually, but I don't know of any publically accessible database which you can refer to to get the ID.

No that’s to do with safety & water nearby.

Thank you all for your amusing and helpful suggestions. I’m surprised no-one spotted it’s already tagged (on the ear) hahaha.

Ahh....so it's a....202498 cow....that doesn't make sense....am I missing something?

 

I see that it's been branded with the Alamy logo already....shrewd move by the owners of the....202498 cow!

 

:D

Who gave that post a red arrow? They've got a long way to go with my rep.

Have I got a stalker?

based on what I have seen on your posts lately...definitely something is up. Nothing offensive about any of them.
