Crazy cows

I'm not a cattle farmer but I have a question. We drove by this neighboring farm three days in a row. The cows are kept in a barn (it's not totally enclosed) with the bottom of the walls open. I get that it is protection from the elements (gets cold here). A few of the cows were going "crazy", running around in between the others. It just seemed odd to see this daily. Is this normal?

Yeah, this happens. I mean, we all get kind of crazy from time to time, don't we? The cows were probably getting a little stir crazy is all. I bet they are out in the fields now.

Ha.. that makes sense. Yes, when I drove by yesterday the cows were out in the pasture. They seemed a lot happier. I bet they were stir crazy, just like us.

Oh yes, we have had some ornery cows. They do get a bit fidgety in the winter months when they are stuck in the barns for longer periods of time. I do too!!

Strange you would mention this. In the past week, I have seen cows outside of their fencing and on the edge of the road on 2 different occasions.
