Must Be The Milk

Cows Jump Over the Moon

Just like us New Englanders, cows love the transition from winter to spring. The sunny skies, the warmer weather, the lush green grass – who wouldn’t be excited?

Just as more joggers line the roads and people are out walking their dogs when spring rolls in, cows are eager to explore the wide open pastures.

As such, it has become a tradition, and a sight to behold, on dairy farms each spring for farmers to welcome their neighbors and community as the cows are let back out to pasture after the long (& cold) winter months.

Even cows get spring fever!
