What are MOO doing here? Newborn calf is caught on doorbell camera exploring front porch after escaping from dairy farm barn

  • A newborn Holstein calf wandered around the front porch of a Wisconsin home
  • The baby cow stumbled around, regained its balance, then gently mooed 
  • Resident Mary Van Rossum said it had staged an escape from her dairy farm

A newborn calf was caught on a doorbell camera exploring a front porch after staging and embarking upon a ‘Great Escape’ from a dairy farm barn.  

Ring gadget footage shows a newborn Holstein calf wandering around the front porch of a Wisconsin home belonging to resident Mary Van Rossum. 

The baby cow can be seen stepping up onto the porch, then stumbling over and bashing against a wall, pausing for a few moments. 

It then slowly regains its balance, before moving over to the rocking chair and gently mooing at around 10.50pm on February 1. 

The baby cow was only a few hours old, but had managed to sneak out of the barn on her dairy farm, Van Rossum’s Dairy in Kaukauna, just 50 yards away. 

Mary, who owns and runs the farm housing 550 dairy cows and 160 calves with her husband Mike, explained: ‘I heard her mooing.

‘When I opened the front door she was laying on the doormat. My husband picked her up and carried her back to the barn and her mama. 

‘It was later that I checked the video camera to see what time she showed up.’  

The calf is reportedly healthy and back in the barn with the other cattle.
