“Eat Mor Chikin”…
The catchphrase needs no introduction, but perhaps the cow (or should that be cows?) who we’ve fallen in love with over the past couple of decades do. So let’s learn a little more about the Chick-Fil-A-Cow who’s become the unlikely star of a fast-food chicken restaurant…
· Introducing the Chick-fil-A cow/s
· What is the breed of the Chick-fil-A cow?
· Training secrets: What makes the Chick-fil-A cow so awesome?
While there have been plenty of cows that have starred in the famous commercials over the past 25 years (yep, it really is that long!) there’s only a handful who’ve made the roles their own. The most long standing of these is a beautiful girl named Freedom, and boy-oh-boy has she got up to some shenanigans throughout her extensive career. Who could forget the parachuting cows as they targeted the burger stalls with their chicken-related slogan? This beautiful lady took center stage in that epic production.
Freedom is well suited to her superstar status. She loves getting stuck into the training to carry out the required tricks. It’s obviously in her genetic makeup, as she’s passed her considerable talents onto her calf, Freckles, who’s also been welcomed into the Chick-fil-A family of bovine actors.
Molly is another of the team. Her talents extend beyond that of the small screen—she’s also strutted her stuff at breed shows, winning none other than the esteemed title of Grand Champion. Then there’s Cat, who was acquired from a dairy as a “springer” (a cow that’s not yet had a calf) when she showed just the right temperament and aptitude to become a high-level actress.
The Chick-fil-A cow, with their distinctive black and white markings, are instantly recognizable. Many people refer to them as simply “spotted”, but the official name of the breed is Holstein.
Training these four-legged delights is, naturally, a skilled task. Just the same as training a horse or a dog (or indeed, a human!), some are better suited than others. Freedom, Freckles, Molly, and Cat delight in their continuing education.
But we’ve learned a little secret into their success—the sweet, sweet taste of molasses. According to their trainer, Cowboy Phil, not only will they do anything for it, but it’s good for them too…
Another vital recipe in the Chick-fil-A cows success story is plenty of R&R. When not training or performing, they get to live their lives in exactly the way cows should—eating, sleeping, grazing, and moo-ching (see what we did there?) around their 300-acre pasture in California.
Cows are amazing creatures. As bright (or perhaps more so) than horses, gentle and affectionate, it’s no wonder they’ve grace both the small and large screen. They’ve also become a firm favorite at petting zoos or even making surprise appearances at parties.
A great-natured cow always has a talented trainer in tow, and the relationship between the two is tantamount to the success of such under-estimated creatures.
