Ever see a cow run?

They will, especially on the first day they're allowed to graze pasture after a long winter of being confined to the barnyard and mostly indoors.

Here's a video: http://www.stonyfield.com/healthy-planet/organic-farming/have-cow/how-make-cow-happy-just-add-grass?utm_source=Silverpop&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Stonyfield%20Moos%20-%20May%202012%20Yahoo%20Day%201%205-25-2012&utm_content=&spMailingID=39250291&spUserID=MjQwMzg2NTAzNjQS1&spJobID=144252995&spReportId=MTQ0MjUyOTk1S0

Of course, the vast majority of cows raised on industrial farms never go outside, let alone see green grass.

i hadn't realized that it's a USDA requirement that cows raised on organic farms must graze on pasture...real grass.. at least 120 days of the year.

    Years and years ago, my dad said he decided he wanted to see if he could ride a cow. So, he climbed a tree and waited for it to come under it. When it did, he jumped on it. It not only ran, but gave him a bucking bronco ride of his life! He said that the backbone was pretty hard too! :-)
