This video tells the story of "Flo", a wonderful cow with a beautiful disposition, as she encountered serious difficulty soon after giving birth to her baby. On a very hot, spring day in Millbrook, Ontario, Flo was near the pond in the meadow that she called home. She and the rest of the herd live on a gorgeous farm where the cows wander freely and graze as they wish. It's life as close as possible to what nature intended for these sweet creatures. For whatever reason, Flo found herself beside the pond and up against the electric fence when it was time for her baby to be born. This fence is there to keep the cows from wandering on the highway and to keep predators out. The voltage is actually dialed down to a low setting. But her calf must have been slippery enough that it slid down the small slope and under the wires. It would have been difficult, if not impossible for the calf to get back under the fence, and Flo could not get to her newborn. The sun was beating down and the baby was supposed to be nursing, getting that first crucial dose of antibodies in his mother's collostrum. (First milk) Dave, a passing motorist who lived nearby had stopped with his GoPro camera because he wanted to film the other cows splashing and bathing in the pond. Their behaviour seemed interesting enough that he wanted to get some video. He stood by the fence with one camera in his hand and another on the fence post. He saw Flo acting annoyed to his left but he thought maybe she was just trying to express displeasure that he was near the fence. Dave knew very little about cattle and he had no idea that her unusual display was actually a request for help. Still not catching on, Dave began to film Flo as she pawed at the ground and paced back and forth. She looked at him and mooed as she did so. Even the other cows knew something was wrong and they came over to look. Flo was looking at the same spot outside the fence, and at Dave alternately. Dave decided he better investigate and he took his camera with him. He saw a small, newborn calf on the outside of the fence. It was lying still and appeared to be either dead or paralyzed with fear. When Dave got closer, he could see that it was OK but that it wasn't able to help itself. Dave knew the wires between him and the mother were not solid enough to hold her back if she objected to him going near the calf but he was now starting to understand that this is what she was asking him for. Cautiously, he moved over to the calf and used a stick to lift the lower wires. He could see the name "Flo" on her ear tag and he spoke to her as he worked to get the calf back into the meadow. The calf's umbilical cord was very fresh, showing that he was just born. Flo relaxed visibly as she saw what Dave was doing. Her agitation decreased and even the sound of her bellows had changed. She made no sign that she was angry as he shoved and wiggled the calf under the wires. The calf and Dave both touched the wire and got a few shocks in the process but Dave was relieved that the calf didn't cry out, as this could alarm Flo. An angry mama cow can sometimes be protective if they sense their babies are being hurt. The calf was eventually reunited with his mother and she promptly licked him and checked him over. As Dave walked away from the fence, she gave him a long look that seems to convey understanding and relief that this stranger had helped her baby. She led him off into the meadow and he was able to nurse right away. The farmers, who had been on an errand while this was happening arrived as she was leading the calf away. Dave offered to help them catch the calf so it could treat the umbilical cord with iodine and give it a checkup. They also had to tag the calf ("F20"). Dave filmed the two as they grazed with the herd. Unbelievably, the little calf saw Dave and wandered up to him curiously, seeming to recognize him from earlier in the afternoon. Flo also seemed to remember Dave and she gave him a long look before wandering off behind her baby. Dave was surprised by Flo's ability to communicate her need for help, as well as her patience with his inability to understand. She persisted until he finally got the message. What was also impressive was the depth of emotion that she showed for her calf, despite the widespread claims that animals are not capable of profound emotion. And one more thing about this encounter struck Dave as remarkable. Flo and her calf seemed to be able to remember that Dave had helped them. Dave created a video about this experience to demonstrate Flo's capacity for emotion, as well as he.

The hypocracy of human race. Telling touching stories about helping a cow, and then growing the cow and calfs just to kill them on the slaughterhouse.

kurbanovm you know that the video was not made by the farmer, right? And that the point is to avoid factory farming, right?

david kasun I was actually only watching with partial attention. I thought she was agitated because I was at the fence. The camera was on the fence post, filming her while I filmed other cows. I tried to look like I was ignoring her. I thought this would calm her down. Then I decided to go closer. And No, you would not have seen that calf and run right over there. You would have no clue there was a calf outside the fence before watching this video

So fortunate that you had a tripod ready to film the non event of a week old calf on the wrong side of a fence..
Pete Littlewood you missed a lot. The calf was less than two hours old. The tripod was a GoPro on a fence post. The non event actually demonstrates something a little deeper...emotional capacity and intelligence of cows. That should lead you to the thought that ethical treatment of animals is important. Reading the description before making an uninformed comment. will help you look more intelligent too. And 19M views total on the various versions of this footage, plus 30k likes tells me it’s hardly a non event. At least, for the deeper thinkers.

Cassandra G i’ll confess, I knew almost nothing about cows until I met the farmer that day. Now I know slightly more than almost nothing. So my slow approach was more to keep her from getting annoyed. I just know that hurrying up to a calf can get you trampled. Call me chicken, if you like, but I was nervous, LOL
Cassandra G
Cassandra G 4 days ago
+WildCreatures I understand what you're saying. I would have approached because I didn't see an angry cow.I'm use to free roaming cows where there's no fencing, that's different. I didn't say anything about you ignoring the calf. I'm glad you helped. Best.

A motorist stopped and pulled on the side of the road to videotape a calf drowning. Instead of actually helping he decided he would just video tape it. why is this on here? People are just ignoring the fact that a man was going to videotape a baby animal drowning. And we're supposed to think that this video is so amazing? I am really glad calf got help but seriously!? Am I the only one who's enraged about the bastard?
WildCreatures 4 days ago
Chantel Chandler what did you misunderstand? There was no cow drowning. I stopped to film a big cow bathing in the pond. I eventually found a calf outside the fence. As soon as I found the calf, I helped the calf. I’m trying to figure out how you could get this all so confused.

WildCreatures 4 days ago
Toby Bolty not really. Those cows live a good long life, grazing in the meadow. Your tags are to track things like medication, pregnancies, and keep track of mortality. It has nothing to do with being a death sentence.

Right! (I should have read the fine print) Thanks for clearing up the matter.

Jesus explains ... the description explains it. The ear tag is not present until the final scene. The farmer came home as Dave was leaving and he asked for help to check and tag the calf.

Just to clarify these are beef cattle,calves both steers and heifers typically stay with their mothers until they are 6 months old at which time they are sold.Dairy Calves only stay with the cow until they have gotten colostrum ,usually in the first day ,then the Cow goes back into Milk Production and the calves are raised by hand.By the way Momma Cows are very protective of their calves having encountered a few angry moms by getting too close.Just being a good mom.
