Alameda Slim, a wanted cattle rustler, uses an alias to buy up properties all over western Nebraska, and his next target is the Patch of Heaven dairy farm, where the widow owner cares more for her 'family' of yard animals's welfare then for profit, so she just hasn't got the cash to keep in business. The other animals, mainly carefree youngsters, being unable, three cows of very different temperament and manners rise to the desperate occasion and set out to do battle for their dream home, teaming up unnaturally with each-other, the sheriff's megalomaniac horse and any other animal who can possibly help, even a crazy lucky rabbit and an invincible buffalo, hoping to beat the crook to the Patch's auction, or anything it takes...

This film marked the beginning of a five-year hiatus of traditionally animated Disney feature films. During its theatrical release (first-run and sub-run) in the United States, the film reportedly earned less than half of its estimated production cost. This was one of the final factors that led to the decision to make this the last traditionally ("hand-drawn") animated Disney feature for theatrical release. In early 2006, at the urging of professionals both in and out of Disney, plans were being considered for resuming traditionally animated features for theatrical release starting with The Princess and the Frog (2009) which ended the hiatus.

Alameda Slim's brand changes between a reflected version and the correct version between shots. For instance, when he is holding the brand towards the camera, the dollar sign should appear reflected. See more »
Gee, you're the biggest cow I've ever saw!
Well, if you're in charge, I'll take that as a compliment.
If not, I guess I'm just gonna have to sit on you.

It's not a step down for Disney, its a tumble down the stairs
From the moment the film starts, we know it's not going to be good, but the more I watch it now, the more cringe-worthy and unwatchable it gets.
Everything from the animation style to the characters and to the plot, is just an absolute train wreck. There is nothing redeemable about this picture. Pending loss of property, kidnapping of the cattle and Pearl's and the dairy cows' relationship as "family" makes me want to retch out of pity for how much fuss they're kicking up over nothing.
Even as a child when I watched it the first time, I had to skip some parts because they were just too silly for me. When you compare it to Finding Nemo for example, a much more dramatic picture with depth, lovable characters and outstanding dialog, you'll see what I mean.
It's not even one of those "so bad it's good" movies. Just plain unbearable.
