It is summer and the focus is on cows. We discover that cows thrive in the wild, love music and problem-solving, and that chickens use twenty-four different clucks to communicate.

It’s summer and we follow the first twelve weeks of a Hereford calf’s life as he makes friends and settles into the herd. We discover that cows are much more than mother nature’s muck-spreaders. They’re highly social animals with complex personalities. They’re brilliant problem solvers with a love of music and given freedom to roam, thanks to the matriarch, they can thrive in the wild just as their ancient ancestors did.
Is it any surprise that Hamish the Ram wants to be one?
But it’s not just about cows. We also discover that chickens use twenty-four different vocalisations to communicate.
