Short black-and-white documentary about the life of the cow in 1994. The cow would appear at first sign to lead a lazy and pleasant life. Everyone knows the reassuring picture of sluggish ruminating cows in a meadow. However one wonders whether this picture still reflects reality. Is the life of today's cow still so peaceful? Inspired by a poem of Gerrit Achterberg.
