Liberty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Liberty
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Holstein Cow
Home: New York, USA
   Hi my name is Libby and this is my friend Liberty. Liberty is a black and white Holstein. On her left side there are some spots that make the number 17. I have been in love with cows forever. I used to live on a dairy farm and every day I would go see the cows. So when I entered 4-h and learned that every year there is an "Earn a Calf Essay" contest, I asked my parents if I could enter. With some approval of my parents and encouragement from my friends, Dairy Club leaders, and family I entered. After one month I got a letter in the mail saying that I won! It was the best day of my life. In June I got to meet her. She was born March 3rd 2013. I had to train her for fair as soon as possible. When fair came Liberty and I placed 2nd in my class out of 10 people! I am very proud of myself and her. She is one of the best things that has ever happened to me!

    She is very friendly but at first she will back away and then sniff you out to see if you are a good person! Don't worry though she doesn't bite! After I started training her and saying her name over and over again, I tried to call her over and Liberty walked right up to me! All that work paid off. Cows like to have the same exact schedule every single day. They do not like changes. So on a normal day she would eat around 6-7 am. Then she will mess around and play or rest. Late at night they get dinner and usually at 9-10 pm is when she likes to lay down for the night. Liberty eats the same things every day, unless she moves to a new pen and there is more or less of something in her feed combination. But she always loves her beet pulp, it is always gone in five minutes!
