Original text on this topic:
The newborn rise to their feet soon after birth (10 minutes in one case) and are walking soon after that. They suckle for the first time within 3-4 h. Cows continue to suckle their young well into the following pregnancy in the wild. Natal Parks report cows lactating for up to 15 month.
