'Utopia' Cows Find New Home at Farm Sanctuary

Looks like there was a happy ending after all for the dairy cows featured in the defunct Fox reality series, “Utopia”.

Cows, Betsy and Honey, were both pregnant when they were purchased and brought onto the show by producers, with Honey soon giving birth to baby Ca$h during production.

The show’s sudden dismissal from the airwaves meant that the trio of cows might be sent back to the harsh conditions of dairy production. In dairy farms, cows are kept in a constant state of impregnation and birth in order to keep them producing milk, which means that calves don’t stay with their moms after being born.

Because Honey was still nursing Ca$h, the show’s veterinarian, Dr. Kerry Milliken, recommended to send the cows to Farm Sanctuary. The national farm-animal rescue and protection organization provides life-long care for nearly 1,000 rescued farm animals and has three sanctuaries in New York and California.

“We’re thrilled to welcome these reality stars to Farm Sanctuary,” Susie Coston, national shelter director for Farm Sanctuary, said in a statement. “Mama cows are so loving and protective of their babies. It’s a beautiful bond that lasts a lifetime when they actually get to stay together. We’re grateful to the ‘Utopia’ producers for recognizing these animals as individuals with their own feelings and desires, and making sure that they get to enjoy a happy life together.”

So now the cows will live out their days chewing on grass and wandering the fields. Oh, and in case you were wondering: Ca$h’s new name is Meredith. It’s truly a happy ending, indeed.
