Autumn, Valentine and Muffin are 3 1/2 years old Holstein cows and were used in reproductive studies. They left the lab and went to a dairy farm; they were bred, each giving birth to a calf. Two of the cows developed a staph infection in their mammary glands after the birth of their calves while at a dairy. If they were to have another calf, this could happen again. The dairy returned them back to the lab.
They are now living they're happily ever after with us at Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary. They have plenty of pasture to roam and are often seen grazing with the horses.
