|Rosamund Young – The Secret Life of Cows|
|The Secret Life of Cows demonstrates that cows can love, play games, bond and form strong life long friendships. They can sulk, hold grudges, have preferences and can be vain. Rosamund Young provides a fascinating insight into a secret world – secret because many modern farming practices leave no room for displays of natural behaviour.
The Secret Life of Cows is not only a study of family and herd relationships, communication, grieving and playing but also makes for a highly readable and poignant study littered with anecdotes that will make the reader laugh, wonder and reflect. Certainly, it will make you look at the domestic cow in a different light.
