Crews were called in to moo-ve the animal, after it stumbled into the waters of the River Tame, near Castle Bromwich.
A specialist sling was fitted round the cow, which weighed a hefty half a tonne. Around 20 men and women were needed to haul it to the bank.
A West Midlands Fire Service spokesman said that crews from Sheldon, Sutton Coldfield, Highgate and a technical rescue unit from Bickenhill attended, following a call at around 4.15pm.
Both the animal and its unborn calf were uninjured following the ordeal.
