Farmer Jimmy Doherty turns his attention to cows in his quest to discover more about the farmyard animals we all take for granted.

He discovers cows were domesticated 10,000 years ago and descend from the auroch which is now extinct. They organise themselves in herds and a new cow to the herd has a series of movements to establish her dominance in it.
