Companion Vs. Other Animals
Comments by Gary Loewenthal - 4 Aug 2007

Cows are naturally social creatures who enjoy hanging out with other cows, so you may want to look at two cows, so they can keep each other company. A solitary cow may become lonely.

Many other companionable animals, such as rabbits and chinchillas, also derive great benefits from having an animal friend. Although, since these animals typically live indoors (at least if you follow the recommendations of their respective advocacy groups), if it is impractical to have two animals, the resident humans can (and should) pick up most of the slack.

Cows, as you point out, can become friends with humans, but since they live outside the humans' home, they benefit greatly from a cow friend.
