Schleich Simmental Calf 13868
Most Hereford calves have a dark red coat. Their face, chest, neck and belly are white. The calves process the food they eat extremely efficiently, which allows them to put on several hundred kilograms in their first two years. A fully grown cow weighs 600 to 800 kg, while a fully grown bull weighs 900 to 1,350 kg. This Schleich Hereford Calf has been professionally sculpted in a standing pose with textured fur, and completed in a hand-painted finish.
Cows can’t understand human language, but they can distinguish between a friendly and an unfriendly tone of voice. They can also tell from the tone of voice whether someone is serious and sincere.
Cows show affection by licking each others’ heads, shoulders and backs. If they are separated from their friends, they often get stressed and sad. It’s not difficult for cows to tell each other apart: they have unique voices and scents. In addition, the animals can identify up to 100 faces from their herd and are highly intelligent. Not only can they solve puzzles, but they actually really enjoy them. If they work out how to open a gate with a button, they jump up and down and frolic around.
Cows and their calves have an extremely deep, life-long bond. They lick and nibble at each other. If they are separated, they can recognise each other later on from their voice and scent. When calves play, they run around, buck up or gently ram each other’s heads.
