This is the sweetest thing I saw all day.

It might not be clear what is going on here at a glance, but once you know the reason behind this photo it is a very touching image.

KLTV shared a set of pictures yesterday of a Texas resident and his cow. The photos are credited to KFDA Stinnet, Texas.

Benjamin Tipps is trying to comfort a cow who lost her calf after a very difficult labor. This happened back the week of Mother's Day, and Ben took it upon himself to help.

Tipps said he felt the need to help the mother say goodbye to her calf. The original caption on social media read:

What a great heart this man has. This momma cow lost her baby yesterday and Benjamin laid with her and petted her to try and comfort her. Such a sweet yet heartbreaking picture
