A hundred years ago, a small farming community called Turriff in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, became the unlikely stage for one of the most bizarre anti-government riots ever staged in Britain. At the center of the disruption was a white shorthorn cow, famed throughout the country as the "Turra Coo".

The story of Turra’s most famous “coo” begins in 1911, the year the government introduced National Insurance.
