One of the happiest cows on Earth.The video below shows the happiest cows I’ve ever seen, and with very good reason. They were once dairy cows, but grew past their milking prime — and the farmer could no longer afford to keep them. They were scheduled to be slaughtered, and then something amazing happened to save their lives.

Watch as the cows prance around the pasture like playful puppies. If you still eat meat, you may want to rethink your hamburger habit after seeing these gentle, intelligent and exuberant creatures. They have a lust for life that I would never want to take away. A heartfelt thanks to Anke Heublin for starting Save the cows in Rhein-Berg to rescue these animals.
