A Holstein calf has melted the hearts of dairy farmers in Australia

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. A Holstein calf has melted the hearts of cow farmers in Australia. The cow, known as Happy, was born with a birthmark that looks like a smiley face. Breeders Megan and Barry Coster say they have never seen a calf with such a unique marking before. Happy instantly became a favorite of the family, so they decided to keep the calf as a pet. Happy will also have a special place on the farm as the Costers' grass-eating lawnmower.
