There are though to be nearly 1.5 million cows worldwide! Most of the population is kept by farmers. Cows spend their days in herds of about 40 to 50 cows, grazing on shrubbery and grasslands. Cows are intelligent animals, able to display emotions and become excited when they are able to solve problems. To help them be cautious of predators they are equipped with an almost 360 degree panoramic vision.
