How do cattle stay warm?

I was out doing a septic tank investigation today and drove past these cattle.  If you look closely you will see that they have their heavy winter coats.  Cattle need a place to escape wind chills likea barn, but with their heavy winter coats they can handle the cold fairly well.  they do eat more in cold weather because they need extra calories to keep body heat up.
