Several years ago our company produced a film for PBS called "The Natural History of the Chicken." It was a film that celebrated the chicken and its relationship to people. Now we have been asked to do more.
We are developing a new PBS Special that celebrates cows and the relationships they have with their owners. In particular we are looking for heartfelt stories, funny stories, sad stories, stories of our relationship to cows that give us a better understanding of these unique animals. If you know cows and know them well – please share with us. We are also hoping to meet charismatic and friendly characters who can tell these stories to us. Or perhaps you know of someone you can refer us to?
We would appreciate it if you could share these with us. Drop us an email with your suggestions and contact information - or if you prefer just a time to call you – if that works best for you?
My friend gave me that chicken film to watch when she found out I was getting chickens. That lady who took her chicken swimming was ...interesting.
I don't think you'll find someone swimming with their cows but during very hot summers my neighbors dairy cows escape on to my property for the sole purpose of, yes, swimming. They have plenty of forested land but no pond. We watched them standing on a rock in the pond and then the next cow in line would get impatient and bump her off the rock into the water just like little kids.
