Some people just prefer the snow!
Cows too, apparently.
Valentine the cow was happy to be outside.
We may not love this weather... but Valentine sure does! Have you ever seen a cow frolick in the snow? ?? #LollypopFarm #CowsOfTwitter #FarmYard #Winter #Snow #RochesterWeather #ROC pic.twitter.com/FYHDnnBP26

Cows, depending on the breed, are built for the cold. A cow's average body temperature is 102 degrees so they actually prefer colder weather! Their thick skin and coats protect them from subzero temperatures.
Like all farm animals, cows must be fed more hay so they don't have to forage ice-covered ground and so they can produce more energy to keep themselves warm.
Valentine here loves the fresh, powdery snow, and she may love being the center of attention too, from the looks of it. She lives comfortably, surrounded by farm friends at Lollypop Farm. Pigs, goats, chickens, llamas, horses, and more, along with rescue cats and dogs, are up for adoption at the Humane Society of Greater Rochester.
Check them out and see where you can help with their care!
Meanwhile, they'll be taking advantage of all that fresh snow!
