The cunning cow was discovered undoing both bolts which keep Daisy and her bovine friends in the barn at nighttime on hidden camera.
Farmer Tom Grant was worried when he discovered his heifers helping themselves to grass in the morning when he knew he had closed them in the night before.
"Every night I would feed these heifers and put them into their respective pens, secured by a two-bar gate.
"I came out one morning and found the gate open and Daisy was out with her friends, and I thought maybe I didn't bar the gate right.
"I thought maybe there were boys about during the night trying to steal a heifer."
Mr Grant was udderly puzzled and the next evening he double-checked that the pen was bolted but Daisy and the other cows still appeared in the field in the morning.
He asked his brother, Vincent Grant, to set up a hidden camera to get to the bottom of the 'moo-stery' and discovered something very unusual.
"I discovered one of the animals was able to open the gate with her tongue," said Vincent.
"I was amazed, I never saw anything like it before and I thought here's a cow of unusual intelligence.
"People have the impression that a cow is a dumb animal, but as you can see from the footage, it's far from dumb, it's quite intelligent. Maybe her calf will take over and put us out."
The farmer said he was pleased to discover it was not thieves who were trying to pilfer his heifers and he would not have to beef up security, rather "Daisy just wanted to do her own thing".
