Yes, that’s right, a pet cow! But not just any cow, a fluffy mini cow! raise a variety of mini cows, which “make exceptional pets” and are great for all the family.


Most miniature cows range from 36 to 42 inches tall, which is the same as a large dog.

Imagine a dog-sized cow roaming around – adorable, right, and not at all creepy.

They’re really easy to take care of, so a pet mini cow is great for teaching children responsibility. Whether you’re setting chores like mucking out or shampooing their fur, their size makes it easy and safe for anyone to look after them.

Based in Eastern Colorado, Lovable Little Ones raise and train their calves to be exceptional pets. They’re halter-broke, trained to be around both adults and children, and of course lovable and adorable too.


Apparently, they demonstrate a great deal of affection and are very social too.

They have all kinds of different miniature cow breeds: Highland, Hereford, Angus, Dexter, White Park, Lowline, and more. Each breed has a different attitude and each have their pros and cons.

A pet steer (neutered male) will set you back $1,500, while a heifer (female which hasn’t produced any calves) can cost between $2,000 and $10,000.

Lovable Little Ones state on their website that they are always striving to breed incredible micro cows that make the perfect pet for any age range:


“Our miniature cow farm is located in Eastern Colorado where we are currently raising pet quality miniature and micro-miniature cows. At Lovable Little Ones™ we take pride in working with and developing our calves to be exceptional pets. Our calves are halter broke, trained to be around adults and children, and of course lovable. It is our goal to be one of the best miniature cattle breeders in the United States that produces the highest quality miniature cattle with lovable dispositions and great personalities.”

Owning a miniature cow does take a lot of responsibility and commitment, though.

They require daily feed and attention, and enough room to keep them happy.


While they don’t need expensive equipment, they do need great care, which takes time and money.

Make sure you’re up for the challenge and are really ready for a pet cow before you buy one.
