Yes, people really do have cows in their backyards. Usually it's on at least a couple acres so they have room to pasture them. The recommended acerage is 1.5 acres per animal for pasture. You can get away with less per head but, will need to feed more hay.

No, Nifty doesn't have any cows in his backyard-maybe someday. ;) My DH and I own/operate a dairy farm so, yes I have cows in my backyard and more.

BYCows started out as a April Fool's Day joke on BYChickens a couple of years ago. If you do a search there I'm sure you will find the thread. Nifty has been hounded to make it a reality since and finally decided to get it up and running this last summer.

My cows are technically not in my backyard, but they're just over the fence (hog wire), so it's just like they are! They're often only a couple hundred feet from the back of our house, at the most. I love it!
