Well I never knew that…

Dexter is the smallest type of cow. This cow was bred to be a small size for household living.

Dairy cows can produce 20 to 35 gallons of saliva a day.

Cows drink anywhere from 25-50 gallons of water each day.

Cows do not have any upper front teeth. Instead they have a thick pad on the top jaw.

Cows can detect odors up to five miles away.

Cows are able to hear lower and higher frequencies better than human beings.

You would have to milk 260 cows for an entire year to fill a space shuttle’s external fuel tank with 529,000 gallons of milk.

The temperature of milk when it is coming out of a cow is about 36 degrees Celsius.

Studies have shown that classical music helps cows produce more milk.
