— MY DAILY COW® APP —
When you download this app after purchasing — you’re done with the internet (except for updates). Your device only needs power for this app to work.
— TODAY’S COW —
Today gives you a different cattle breed every 24 hours or whenever you start up the app again after 24 hours.
Today’s Cow (example displayed on iPad Pro):
Your My Daily Cow® App scales to whichever iOS device you are using (see examples below).

— SHAKE-A-MOO —
Can't wait another 24 hours for your random cow? SHAKE YOUR DEVICE! That’s right – we’ve invented Shake-A-Moo — every time you shake your device you get a different cattle breed (and some very a-moo-sing moo-sound variations.
Shake-A-Moo (example displayed on iPad Pro):
Shake your device as many times as you like. It doesn’t matter where you are in the app, either; you’ll get a cow. Just tap the Today tab on the bottom menu bar and you will go back to your cow of the day.
— HISTORY —
Your current Today’s Cow breed is always at the top of your History list.
History (partial example displayed on an iPhone X):
The History tab opens a dated list of your daily dose of cow from all the days you have opened the app. It does NOT add cows on days when you don’t use or open the app. Because this app is not connected to the internet, it does not lurk in the background using your battery. (We also have no way of knowing what your daily cow is unless you email and tell us. Take a screenshot if you want to show your friends.)
All cows are still available in the Reference section for you to browse or look up at any time. Add any cow you really like to your Favorites list in the Reference section by tapping the ‘+’ in the upper right-hand corner.
— COW PARTS —
Cow Parts is a section where you can roam about and discover over 100 cow parts — all of which are diagramed and/or explained.
The main categories in Cow Parts are:
All links take you to answers that are within the My Daily Cow® App itself. (You are not searching the web for the answers.)
The A-Z section has 937 bovines so far — cows, bulls, heifers, calves, oxen, steers, bibovines, yaks and yakows — all in alphabetical order by breed name.
A-Z (top of list example displayed on iPad Pro):
• GROUPS : Cattle organized by similar characteristics
The Groups section shows you general cattle group divisions. Cattle breeds that share similar characteristics and originated in the same general area are listed under these headings.
Example of a GROUP division:
A-3: Horned/Dairy/Scandinavia and Scotland
GROUPS (top of list example displayed on iPad Pro):
• COUNTRIES / AREAS : Places where cattle breeds originated
The Countries / Areas section organizes cattle breeds by place of origin with 169 different countries and areas represented.
COUNTRIES / AREAS (top of list example displayed on iPad Pro):
• USES : Cattle uses in order of importance
The Uses section lists 37 different cattle uses (milk, beef, work, fighting — and more) and then shows you the cattle breeds raised for them.
USES (top of list example displayed on iPad Pro):
Why list the term ‘milk’ instead of ‘dairy’?
Cows do not produce ‘dairy’ — they produce milk; a cow can be used for milk. Our research has also shown that ‘milk’ is a more universally understood term for a cow’s use. This is why the My Daily Cow® App lists ‘milk’ as a major use instead of ‘dairy’.
• GLOSSARY : Bovine terminology and nomenclature
The Glossary section contains over 700 bovine-related terms*, nomenclature* and anatomy — all clearly explained. Want to know how cows really digest food other than some cartoon version you got in a coloring book? Need to know those bovine body parts because you’re an agricultural student? Then this is the app for you!
GLOSSARY (top of list example displayed on iPad Pro):
*terms - words or phrases used to describe something. *nomenclature - the body or system of names in a particular field (like agriculture, which sometimes talks about fields, which can then contain cattle, and the list goes on and on and on . . . this app has become a mini-encyclopedia.)
• FAVORITES : Your favorite cows
The Favorites section lets you keep a list of your favorite breeds. You can add and delete cows any time you see fit. No matter where you are in the app, you can tap the ‘+ ’button in the upper right corner of your screen to add a cow to your Favorites list.
See how easy it is to add a Favorite by following the example below:
1. You found the Afrikaner in the A-Z section. Tap the ‘+’ button in the upper right corner — if you don't see the ‘+’ button, that cow is already your top Favorite cow. (example displayed on an iPhone X):
2. The Afrikaner, with your permission, is now added to your Favorites (example displayed on an iPhone X):
3. The Afrikaner is now at the top of your Favorites list. Go there and tap the ‘Edit’ button in the upper right corner of your screen to edit your list (partial example displayed on an iPhone X):
4. You can now delete the Afrikaner (or any cow) from your list (partial example displayed on an iPhone X):
5. Once deleted, tap the ‘Done’ button in the upper right corner of your screen (partial example displayed on an iPhone X):
6. The Afrikaner is now gone from your Favorites list (partial example displayed on an iPhone X):
