Every Day is #CowAppreciationDay


Dairy farmers and beef producers appreciate their cows every day. They help us live the life we love and provide nutrients to consumers.

Well, today was Cow Appreciation Day…in case you didn’t have that on your calendar. Chick-fil-A used the obscure day as a way to give away free chicken sandwiches to people who dressed like a cow. But it was also a way for cattle producers and organizations to share on social media what they love about cattle.

Here is a sampling of the posts we found following #CowAppreciationDay:
