Cow Appreciation Day
About Cow Appreciation Day
When is Cow Appreciation Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 15
Today is Cow Appreciation Day. And, that’s no bull! But, this July 15 holiday is certainly something to “Moo” about. Cows provide us with many things, including dairy products and meat to feed us. They also provide leather for clothing and furniture. Today we show appreciation for all of those things.
Our appreciation for cows can be expressed in many ways. Some websites suggest you go out and give a cow a big hug and/or a kiss. While it might sound like fun, you don’t have to go to extremes to enjoy this special day. It can be as simple as pausing for a moment to think about cows and all that they do for us.
Now that we’ve had our moment of silence and reflection, it’s time to celebrate. Have an ice-cold glass of milk. Add chocolate syrup, if you prefer. Then, fire up the grill, and cook some burgers or a steak. And, don’t forget to get your fill of cheese. Sorry, goat cheese is not on the menu today.
Cow Appreciation to the Extreme: In the country of India cows are sacred. They cannot eat them. However, Asian Indians can drink milk and milk byproducts like cheese and yogurt.
Note: Restaurants and dairy companies celebrate this day by offering specials. Watch for them, and save.

Thought for Today
