Night of the Hair-Raising Heifers

When we go out on Organic Valley farms and take pictures of cows out on pasture, our photographers come back with thousands of pictures to sort through. Of course, only a fraction of those make the final cut, but as we were looking through some recent batches, we noticed something a little...odd.

We’d look at a picture and see a cute kid, but then notice...

Little girl peeks out from under a cow in a grassy field.

Some of our cows were being a little...suspicious.

It made us wonder…

Are our cows out to get us?!

"Soon. Soon I will...

...give you a cowlick! Muahaha!"

The Zweber kids suspect something...

Happy Halloween, friends! And don’t worry, we don’t actually think our cows are out to get us. It's all just a spooky spoof. Cows are curious animals and love to check people out to see what’s going on. They’ll even rock out to music if you play your instrument out on the pasture.

Have a safe and fun holiday!
