All About Cows

Cows are gentle and friendly animals that live on farms all around the world. They are big and have a special kind of beauty with their large, round bodies and big eyes.

Did you know that cows are mammals just like us? That means they give birth to live babies and produce milk to feed them.

Cows are herbivores, which means they eat plants. They have a special stomach with four parts that help them digest the grass and hay they eat. Cows spend a lot of time grazing in fields, munching on grass, and enjoying the sunshine. They love to be around other cows and often form groups called herds.

If you love cows as much as we do, then you’ll enjoy these free cow coloring pages! You can color in all your favorite cows, from the black-and-white Holsteins to the brown Jerseys.
