Smarter than I think they are?  That's a pretty low bar.

As a kid, we always had a few head of cattle. Seemed like there were always one or two that could open a gate like the first clip. My brother and I were blamed for years before our parents saw it for themselves.

Yea but they reached it.  That cute chick teaches that longhorn to fetch a frisbee.....I might be on board with a whole new line of pets.   House Longhorn.

from wikipedia

A few of his cartoons were controversial simply because they were hard to understand. A particular example was "Cow tools," which depicts a cow standing by a table on which rest four oddly shaped objects. Larson had found it funny that cows would be really bad at . His mistake was making one of the tools resemble a saw, as it led people to believe they had to identify the other tools to understand some kind of deeper meaning. "'Off days' are a part of life," he writes, "whether you're a cartoonist, a neurosurgeon, or an air-traffic controller."

They would have to be.  I imagine them to be as bright as the life support system for meat needs to be.

They still haven't figured out how to be less delicious.

Don't ever pet a calf.

They are very affectionate, and will turn around so you can pet their other side, nuzzle up against you, and moo sadly when you leave.  If you turn and come back, they rush up to you for more love.  They're totally innocent and trusting, like a big friendly dog.

You will come away from the experience knowing that cows have feelings and just want to be friends.

All is well until your next beef dinner, when you think "ah maaan...."

/don't do it.

My uncle has cattle, and he has one bull he will not sell.  The bull's name is Fred.  When he does sell a few off to go towards the slaughter house, they don't eat beef for a week.  I was never that attached.

Cows in Trouble
by Steve Martin, from Cruel Shoes

These were not the average "contented" cows. They were cows born for trouble. They were not cows who could stand by and let people call them "bossy." They were cows who could not hang around all day lowing. They were cows who could be just as happy chewing someone else's cud as their own. They were renegade cows.

My first experience with the renegade cows began one day as I was admiring a particularly attractive cow at Johnson's Weed Farm. As I stood there watching her sultry body moving lithely through the rushes, I noticed several other cows staring at me through the weeds, giving me that look that only a cow can give.

Later that night, I was at home thinking over the day's events. The Rubber Duck Throwing Contest, the parade that followed: bands and floats and baton-tossing girls all marching down the middle of the Missouri River. I should have been analyzing the glare of those cows I'd seen earlier that day.

The doorbell rang. I opened the door, glad to have a visitor, but found myself face to face with three renegade cows. I could not see their eyes behind the dark glasses. They ambled in and I did not try to stop them.

That night they just stood around my bed and watched me sleep, much the same way my potatoes do, and I guess you might say I learned my lesson: Don't fool with renegade cows.

I'm sure cows are as you described. But I still wouldn't think twice before smashing down a steak.

I wouldn't have such issues.  I would consider me and my cow-pal are now one.
