placenta eating cow

Not for the faint hearted, but I was able to capture this moment yesterday. Not sure why cows eat the placenta, but she ate the whole lot. Something I'd never seen before, was nice to see this little calf have her first drink.
waste not want not, precious nutrients, have heard of humans doing this!

Human placentas, at least, are very nutritious, so much so that some mothers opt for saving and and eating their placentas too. It does seem a little primal to me, and less disturbing to see a cow do it. Great catch! -Porthos

Motherly attention to detail- she knows that its the right thing to do. Great timing and capture.
