Bessy used to have a son who floated away on a bunch of balloons at a county fair when he was only a few months old. This caused Bessy to become mean and bitter towards most people (except Daisy). Sometime later, Bessy and Daisy's herd were killed by a flash flood and they joined the barnyard where they met Otis, Pip, Pig, Miles, Duke, Freddy and Peck, their new herd and Daisy had Lil' Ben.
Bessy is short-tempered, sassy, feisty, bossy and sometimes nasty. She tends to yell sometimes, not afraid to tell it like it is, and has - according to Otis - a "heart of acid", mostly because she is usually very mean, especially to Otis. However, she is best friends with Abby and Daisy. Originally, Bessy was Daisy's "bodyguard". She also serves as the school principal for Macy, Joey, and Boil.
In "Otis' Mom," Bessy revealed that she had a son who floated away with balloons at a county fair. All she has to remember him by is his cow bell, which, strangely, Otis has. Thus, Bessy thought that Otis was her son, but at the end, she realized they aren't at all related. In "Get Bessy," the rest of the crew thought that she was a spy or a jewel thief, but in reality, she worked as a personal shopper for "Weird Al" Yankovic. She often says that Otis' plans are stupid and creates insulting nicknames for the people she is annoyed with. For example, she calls Freddy a "mangy mongoose", although it might change a lot, but she usually calls Otis a moron.
Bessy is a light brown cow with dark brown spots.
- Bessy's name is sometimes spelled as Bessie.
- Bessy has been kissed by Pip and Pig before: Pig in "Pig Amok" and Pip in "Aliens!!!".
