Sarah Purdon (www.sarahpurdon.com/Beef.html) produces the most delicious beef from her Hampshire-based herd of Belted Galloway cows. She keeps them on water meadows, loves each one and they come to her when she calls them by name. As they are her livelihood , she has no qualms in saying, "Try this steak: it's dear old Buttercup!"
One day police were chasing a thief on the other side of her field. The thief jumped the fence and was heading towards the gate on the opposite side of the field. Sarah called her cows and lined them up in front of the gate which made the police very grateful.
