If you prefer watching to reading, this video basically says it all (plus cute cows!): http://nyti.ms/PclBRA

The only thing not in the vid that I loved from the article is the part about how he’s running a “bovine retirement home” – when a cow is too old to be profitably productive, instead of slaughtering her, Bansen may trade her to a smaller family farm, or use her to suckle newborn calves. I love that!

I can’t imagine that older (grand)mama cow doesn’t get a little satisfaction from being wet nurse to the little ones!
