Otis (Kevin James) is actually a bull, but he is affectionately called a cow by the others in the barnyard as he strangely has udders. His dad Ben (Sam Elliott) is the leader of the barnyard and takes it upon his shoulders to keep the farm animal population well-protected from Dag and his pack of coyotes, who continuously attempt to steal some of the farm animals.

The night the farmer leaves on a trip the animals have themselves a ball, standing up on two legs immediately, as preparations are underway. Ben tries to talk Otis into assuming responsibility, and grow out of his goofy phase. Instead Otis manages to slip himself out of guard duty during the barnyard ball, leaving the task completely to Ben, who runs into Dag and his pack of coyotes. Ben comes out on top, but is bitten and Otis races to his side only to see him die. Now the barnyard is looking to Otis for leadership- can he begin to accept responsibility, keep Dag and his coyotes at bay, and protect his farmyard family?
