According to Biblical precedent, cows represent years in dreams. Recall in Genesis 41, Joseph interpreted Pharoah’s dream when he saw seven fat cows followed by seven skinny cows. True to the prophetic dream, his nation had seven years of plenty followed by seven years of famine. Because of the dream warning, Joseph was able to lead the nation to prepare for the years of famine.
Having no memory whatsoever of ever dreaming about cows in the past, I started having dreams about cows in 2019. Below are all of them: October 2019 through January 2023.
I wish I had the understanding of Joseph to tell you exactly how to prepare for every outcome. The only preparation I can encourage is that the people of God stay yielded to and filled with the Spirit of Christ. Fast and pray regularly, fasting is our greatest power.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. John 14:16-18
Remember, visions or dreams are from the Lord, so long as the receiver is yielded to and filled with the Spirit of Christ. Thoughts and opinions about them may be right, or they may be very wrong, so take any opinions expressed below lightly. These particular dreams are purely symbolic and require skilled interpretation.

A large cow was running chaotically toward us, back and forth, not in a straight line. Then, it ran into the river where there were a lot of people. I shouted to my husband to stop it. He swam after it, and it got out on the other side safely and disappeared into the woods.
Thoughts: If this was prophesying the year, 2020, it was dead-on accurate! Covid-19 came at us and the world was in chaos. FYI, in dreams, my husband is a symbol of Jesus/Yeshua, the Bridegroom/Messiah.

I saw a distinct, quick vision of the rear end of a cow. It was laying on its right side. Its back legs were moving somewhat slowly, so it appeared dying and, if agitated, only slightly so. Its udders appeared somewhat bulged, in other words, still had milk.
Thoughts: If this was prophesying 2021, it was foretelling what life in America would be like with businesses dying, people quarantined at home, working remote, public gatherings limited, etc.

Had a vision of a man, maybe in a suit, wrestling (wrangling?) a cow in a building stairwell! The cow was trying not to go down.
Dec 26, 2020
Before going to sleep, had a quick and foggy vision of the head of a spotted cow. I was looking at it from above, as if it was in a bucking chute (what bulls are kept in before being released at the rodeo). It seemed very agitated.
Thoughts: I wrote at the time, “I fear 2021 may come in angry…” (Sure enough, on Jan 6, 2021, there were protests in D.C.)
Waking, had a very dramatic vision of two beasts in a glowing sky facing my view (coming almost toward me). The one, much larger beast with two big, long horns (a bull) was chasing the smaller beast – maybe a cow? Both were glowing as if on fire, as if entering our atmosphere like objects from space.
Thoughts: Again, this could have been related to the protests on January 6, 2021. However, I more recently listened via YouTube to Jonathan Cahn talking about the symbol of the bull in America. It is not a good symbol, but a dark one. His book, Return of the Gods, goes into detail the significance. Was this dream prophesying something similar to what he would write about in 2022, about a specific evil identity entering our ‘atmosphere’? Seems too on point to be a coincidence.
Jan 17, 2021
Vision: Saw a cow suspended, hovering in air over ground, unable to land or go forward, confused.
Vision: Saw a larger bull, also suspended in air, separate from the cow, also unable to land or go forward.
Thoughts: Perhaps it still isn’t too late for the people of God to stop the progression of hell’s attacks on our nation through repentance, prayer and fasting. (2 Chron. 7:14)
Jul 12, 2021
Saw a dining table behind multiple curtain panels. The panels were sheer and also had narrow gaps between them. Then I saw a full grown cow facing me, standing behind the table, which turned its head to its right before the scene ended. The cow was standing center/right of the table from its view and had subtle variegated markings, not solid brown, etc.
Thoughts: The end of 2022 brought an election which once again turned to the “Right”. The House was overturned, “Red” once again. Also, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade (federally mandated abortions) in the Fall of 2022.
Oct 23, 2021
I was with another and we were trying to get back to the safety of what looked like a lab a few steps above the ground floor, and there were dead cows, whose number I didn’t count, laying everywhere with their blood pooling outward. We knew we could not touch their blood, for it was toxic and would kill us. We ran through the scene, finally tip toeing through smaller and smaller clean spots, but we did make it through, barely.
Thoughts: At the time I had this dream, I wrote: “Is this about Covid?”
Dec 11, 2021
Within another dream, I realized former dream about dead cows with toxic blood (Oct 23) was about Covid.
Thoughts: This confirms interpretation of the Oct 23 dream. This happened to be dream #666 in my log for 2021, very ominous. Is this a look backward? Or, prophesying more plagues to come, as foretold for the end times in the Book of Revelation?
Jan 25, 2022
I had a vision of three cows floating in clear water and they appeared as if they weren’t 100% real, but plastic. I believe the one closest to my view was upside down with legs sticking up. The second one was front/head down, and the third and farthest from me, feet down. The water looked like a man-made body of water, like swimming pool water.
Thoughts: If this ‘cow’ dream is anything like the former cow dreams, then it may be predicting the next three years. Plastic may represent credit debt – drowning in debt! Since the cows already appeared lifeless, I’m not sure why the closest one has legs up. That also represents death. The second was face down… fall on our face? The third, legs down, maybe drowning in debt but still standing. A progression of dealing with debt, over three years? Whatever it is, the situation – plastic in a swimming pool – is entirely man-made, start to finish.

Last night before falling asleep, I had a vague vision of a brown cow rubbing its head on the ground and then going to roll on the ground, or perhaps lie down. Just as it was about to do so, I saw another beast lighter in color, like an odd bull with fierce face, big mouth and teeth, come and quickly swallow the cow.
Thoughts: This is very ominous, another possible dream of a bull and showing the creature (maybe even a cross between a bull and lion?) succeeding in swallowing the cow. Yikes, not a good prophetic dream, trouble to come. How to prepare? People of God, stay in Christ, stay surrendered and filled with the Spirit. Make fasting a regular practice and stay in prayer. Join with other believers to pray for our nation, with like-minded people who take the spiritual disciplines seriously and are willing to fast regularly. Remember 2 Chronicles 7:14, “if my people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land“, but also remember per the Book of Revelation, eventually the end times must take place.

I was inside a large building and there was a glass skylight above me just to the left. I looked up just as two cows landed on the skylight and each said hello while looking down.
Thoughts: Is the skylight a symbol of the proverbial glass ceiling (an old metaphor used to describe the idea that women never rise higher than a certain ‘glass ceiling’ in business or politics, meaning, they never achieve the same success as men – something that has changed dramatically in recent years with many women CEOs, politicians and more)? In the dream, the glass isn’t broken, but why are two cows (years) looking down from above it? To show it is still intact, or to show they got around it? Still, perhaps the “glass ceiling” has nothing to do with the dream at all.
Jan 7, 2023
There was a cow in my backyard. He was just standing there and repeatedly urinated on the cement patio. I thought, why didn’t he just use the grass, and then thought, well, the rain will wash it away.
Thoughts: This seems to be prophesying a year of people and leaders ‘p—ing on’ the foundations of our nation more than ever before, but the foundations can still be washed and will not break… yet.
Friends, that is it for now. Stay in Him. No matter what happens now or in the future, He is good. He is with us to comfort and guide. He never promised easy in this life, He promised His companionship and love, that His presence would strengthen and guide us. He did promise the next life, eternity, will be free of suffering for those in Christ. Hold onto that hope and know He is with us.
…weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning… Psalm 30:5
