What are bully sticks?
- Bully sticks are a medium density chew for dogs and are suitable for all dogs (except dogs with a beef allergy)
- They are ideal for puppies who are starting to chew, but can’t quite manage tougher treats
- They are also good for the older dog with fewer teeth
- They are a healthy and nutritious single-sourced protein chew
- The gentle abrasive action of the chew helps to maintain good dental health
- High in protein, low in fat treat
A bit of Trivia for you.
- All “cows” are female. Males are called bulls or steer. Before having a calf for the very first time, a female is called heifer. Once she has her first calf, she becomes a cow.
- There are over 800 different cattle breeds recognized worldwide (according to Wikipedia). Beef breeds are raised for their meat and dairy breeds are raised to produce milk.
- Cows don’t eat meat – ever. They’re always “vegetarian fed”.
- Cows can see almost 360 degrees. This near-panoramic view lets them watch for predators from all angles. However, they don’t see well straight in front of them so they will typically turn their head to look at you.
- Cows have an acute sense of smell and can detect odors up to six miles away.
- Cows are very social and don’t like to be alone. If one is isolated, it’s usually because she is sick or about to give birth.
- Cows have no upper front teeth. They press their sharp bottom teeth against the top hard palate of their mouth to cut blades of grass.
- A cow has 32 teeth, and will chew about 40-50 times a minute.
- A cow will chew for up to eight hours a day
- Cows move their jaws about 40,000 times a day.
- Cows spend about 10 hours a day lying down.
- Cows will stand up and lay down about fourteen times a day.
- Cows can sleep while they’re standing.
- Cows are ruminants, which are cud chewing mammals. Other ruminant animals are sheep, giraffe, goats, and deer, just to name a few.
- The main stomach of a cow, the rumen, holds up to 50 gallons of food that has been partially digested. To put that in perspective, a bathtub can usually hold 30-50 gallons of water.
- Cows can see color. But, when you see a Matador waving a red flag at a bull (a male “cow”), the bull charges because of the flag’s movement, not the color red.
- The average body temperature of a cow is 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In the winter, cows thick skin and hair is a natural insulator that protects them from the bitter cold.
- Cows have 4 digestive compartments in one stomach – the rumen (this is where the cud comes from); the reticulum; omasum; and abomasum (this is sort of like a human’s stomach).
- George Washington’s dentist made him dentures out of cow, hippopotamus and walrus teeth
- The hamburger debuted at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis.
- Almost 2,000 quarter pound hamburgers can be made from the ground beef in one cow.
Wow I didn’t know many of those facts!
