When you think of the term “opposites attract,” we are pretty sure a cow and a duck is not the pair that comes to mind! However, Hof Butenland farm sanctuary has documented the blossoming romance between their two adorable residents.

According to the video caption, ever since the charming duck, Amanda, laid eyes on the four-year-old, Lillja the cow, she has been smitten. Hopefully, Amanda learns to give Lillja a little space and Lillja learns to give the small but mighty duck a chance to win her over.

As you can see, farm animals are not much different from your pets at home. They are affectionate, intelligent, and social animals – they also have their own preferences, dislikes, and personalities! Why love one and eat the other?

Hof Butenland provides rescue and life-long refuge for farm animals that have been saved from slaughter, neglect, exploitation, and abuse. The compassionate team at Hof Butenland works every day to nurture a new respect and way of thinking towards farmed animals.

I see someone also recognized it is a goose as well. We had a goose named Jimmy who was the most adorable companion unless he had his better half with him. Then he wanted to sort us out as the lower ranking in the scheme of things, bossing us around. Loved that goose, sadly gone now.

And then according to genesis you may slaughter and eat them... Instead of teaching people that slaughter is evil, we skip around the issue and hope they will forget their judeo.christian roots.

Admiring, petting or cuddling animals does not preclude their slaughter according to the biblical view of animals....

Do you follow everything in the bible or just those that follow what you are already doing? Like do you avoid wearing mixed fabric and do you feel that a rape victim should be forced to marry her rapist?

The Duck is really asking the cow to play with her. Animals are so Genuinely sweet & innocent. Rescuing an Animal is one of the most rewarding thing any human could do. Thanks for rescuing these defenseless sentient beings from the evil people who may have murdered them for food.

If only we humans could get along as well as these innocent beings.
