If you haven’t “herd” about them, you soon will as this bevvy of bovine beauties stampede onto screens for a new show that will leave you gasping for moo-re.

In the premier of “Keeping Up with the Cowdashians,” we are introduced to the five feisty Cowdashian sisters Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie, who bring sass to the grass and sway to the hay in the foothills of Northumberland, England.

The online reality TV show is the brainchild of Great British Meat Company Director (and COW-TV Executive Producer), Sam Wass, 38, of Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom.

The boss of the Team Valley firm created the concept as a fun way of highlighting the quality of locally sourced produce while poking fun at reality TV stars in general.

Sam said: “We studied charts of the Cheviots and searched the peaks of the Pennines to find the coolest cows in Christendom for this show.”

In the first show “Ooo-arr the Cowdashians” we are introduced to the five sisters at their home in Hadrian’s hills – Wallsteads Farm – and the farmer charged with keeping them in check, Alastair Patterson.

“I don’t know what kind of drama people are looking for with reality TV, but if they want to watch videos of cows eating grass, wandering around and dropping cow pats then they’re in for a treat!” said Alastair.

The Cowdashians were all raised at Wallhouses Farm in Northumberland, which is named after Hadrain ‘Wall’ the historic Roman border between England and Scotland, which is where the farm is located.

Sam was keen to look at ways of highlighting the company’s passion to source produce regionally and came up with the Cowdashian concept to poke fun a celebrity culture.

Sam said: “We are not aiming for Oscars with this, it’s all a bit of farmyard fun and hopefully will make people think a little bit about where their food comes from and how it is produced.”

The Cowdashians even have their own Twitter and Facebook accounts: @kimcowdashian and https://www.facebook.com/kimcowdashian?fref=ts
