Don’t have a cow, Jenna!
Jenna the dairy cow was destined to be killed because she was born infertile and unable to produce milk.
But at just three days old, she was taken in by Ryan Phillips, 42, and Mallory Sherman, 34, who run a not-for-profit farmyard sanctuary.
Jenna was just three-days-old when was taken in by Ryan Phillips, 42, and Mallory Sherman, 34, who run a not-for-profit farmyard sanctuary.
Phillips nursed and cared for her, building up a strong bond, so Jenna gets very impatient if she doesn’t get to greet him first thing each morning.
She makes a beeline for their kitchen window and moos loudly until he comes to say good morning.
An adorable video shows their morning routine, at the farm in Williamsburg, Va.
Phillips said: “Jenna treats me like I’m her best friend and saw me like I was her mom when she was little because I brought and fed her bottles.
“She’d knock me in my belly to attempt to make more milk come out.

“I spent every night talking and laying with her in the barn and making sure she was healthy and happy.
“And so, now we continue to have a bond that results in her mooing for me and needing morning hugs – as well as lots of time together during the day, and goodnight hugs and scratches as well.
