Get your gaming on.
Love that popular Facebook game Farmville, then Cow Chow is right up your family's alley. This computer game brought to you by the good folks from the Beef Checkoff have created an interactive game about what cows eat. It event includes a video made by strapping on a camera to a calf so you can see what a day of eating looks like for a cow.
The game helps explain what Cow Chow really is. The Boy and I's cows receive a ration of forages (grass in the summer time and hay in the winter), grains, water, vitamins and minerals just like other cows from across the country.
Play along with Jill or Bill and learn about grass fed cattle, feedlots, and how cattlemen feed their cattle. Did you know that 80-85% of a cow's life is spent on grass, and on 100-120 days are spent in a feedlot if that animal is being raised for consumption.
