Hi, I have two cows. They were bottle fed from the start, and have been rather nice cows since then. The cows seem to have gotten a lot more defensive now that they're a lot bigger (they're about 2 years old). They've been a lot pushier, and sometimes run at you waving their head from side to side, in an offensive manner. Now, I'm wanting to get rid of one of them, and here's where my question lies: Will getting rid of the one change the behavior (in a negative way) by doing so? We still have other animals such as goats and sheep around.

I think this is a good idea. Remove and either sell or butcher one. What are the breeds?
Might take a few days for the cow to settle in alone and realize her sister is gone, but she will figure it out and might have a kinder disposition afterward as she will not have a fellow female to fight with.
