Rayann, a new arrival at Wagner Farm, should be the happiest dairy cow in the world. After all, Wagner Farm, a self-professed model for “humane” and locavore farming, is as good as it gets for dairy cows. So why does Rannan look like her spirit has been broken? Could it be that her calf was taken away from her just days ago? Could it be that she is lonely, confined to a tiny stall with a window overlooking all the other cows on pasture? Could it be that she doesn’t want to be milked with milking machinery and thus puts up a fight every time they try to drag her out of the stall? What’s so happy about being used for your milk and having your family broken up?
