Cow Appreciation Day- Go out and give a cow a hug

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Cow Appreciation Day

When : July 15th

Today is Cow Appreciation Day. And, that's no bull! But, it is something to "Moo" about.

As I began my research for this day, I talked to my granddaughter about plans for this page. I was intending to comment in a nice way, about everything that cows give us. But, my granddaughter convinced me to simply talk about the dairy products.

C'mon, big guy...... give me a hug!

Our appreciation for cows can be expressed in many ways. Some websites suggest you go out and give a cow a big hug and/or a kiss. While it might sound like fun, you don't have to go to extremes to enjoy this special day. It can be as simple as pausing for a moment to think about cows, and all that they do for us.

Now that we've had our moment of silence, it's time to celebrate. Have an ice cold glass of milk. Add chocolate syrup, if you prefer. Then, fire up the grill, and cook some burgers or a steak. And, don't forget to get your fill of cheese. Sorry, goat cheese is not allowed today.

Note: Restaurants and dairy companies celebrate this day by offering specials. Watch for them, and save.

The Origin of Cow Appreciation Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. The selection of the date is not universal. Some websites have Cow Appreciation Day listed as July 14th.
