Even with all his millions that's probably the only way he gets to touch a nipple of the female variety.

They did. The episode I remember involved a bull though. A guy was trying to steal the "cows" by putting shoes on them and walking them out of the barn.

The Andy Griffith Show was not in the 1950's. It ran from 1960...-1968. Get your decades right.

Yes, there was a cow in at least 1 episode. I don't remember the exact story but they thought it was 2 "bad guys" because there were 2 sets of foot prints but it turned out to be a cow that had shoes on...for some...strange...reason; I can't remember why.

How can you guys not know about the cow thief episode? One of the greatest Barney Fife episodes ever.

There is also a episode where Otis, the town drunk has a cow that he rides around town like a horse.

Hey guys, I like TMZ but the Andy Griffith Show was on during the 60's not the 50's. It just seemed like the 50's.

OK, you guys are really hurting for stories aren't you?
Next you'll be putting cameras in his bathroom to see how he poops and which hand does he wipe with.

Get real!

lots of cows in Mayberry: episode where Ellie helps farm girl, episode where Aunt Bea wants to save the moonshiners barn, Aunt Bea and the milk man, and any barn that Barnie went in to there was a cow.

There was a cow that had on boots to look like two robbers did their deed. Andy caught them.

Gotta call BS on the statement that they couldn't show cows being milked back in the Maybery days.....they showed it on I love Lucy, when they were touring Italy.
Opie lived in a suburban neighborhood in Mayberry, not on a farm. They had no permanent animals or pets.
