Grass is hard to digest. That is why cows chew an average of 50 times per minute - a total of 30,000 times per day. Even if we humans really make an effort, we generally do not chew a morsel of food more than 30 times. Cows produce over 150 litres of saliva per day as a result. This makes them very thirsty, so they also drink a lot of water: up to 180 litres per day. This is equivalent to a large bathtub filled to the top. If they are very thirsty, they can even drink 25 litres per minute. All Schleich models are beautifully hand painted to give wonderful role play to children and also make a great collectors item for the nature enthusiast. This stunning Schleich Simmental Cow makes a perfect addition to the Schleich range.
