Cowmoonication: New Study Finds Cows Express Their Feelings With Different Sound of Moos

A study published last month in Nature's Scientific Reports found that cows' "voices are individually distinct," and that "they're able to maintain these individual characteristics across the contexts". The research team hopes that "through gaining knowledge of these vocalizations, farmers will be able to tune into the emotional state of their cattle, improving animal welfare".

Cows Sitting Like Dogs Is Somewhere Between Weird And Adorable

It looks so unnatural and slightly uncomfortable to look at but we can't look away. In fact, we're kind of in love with these dog-sitting cows and wish to purchase our very own farm to witness this phenomenon first hand.

13 Pics Of Calves In Earmuffs To Protect Them From Frostbite

These earmuffs may look adorable but they serve a very important purpose. The calves must be protected from the cold as it can lead to severe frostbite, hypothermia, and even death. These muffs help protect from the wind chill. 

According to Dr. W. Dee Whittier, Bovine Specialist at the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, wrote in a paper titled 'Calves and the Cold', "Frostbite is the damage to body tissues that occurs when these tissues freeze. The extremities are most at risk. Frozen ears and tails result in changes of cattle appearance but do not affect cattle performance significantly." 

Dr. Whittier continues, "Newborn calves are most at risk because they are wet and because they have a large surface area in relation to their total body mass. Calves are not fully capable of maintaining temperature the first several hours of life. Newborn calves have a circulatory system that is less able to respond to cold changes as compared to more mature animals."

Turns out, when it comes to detecting frostbite, if the ear-tips are frozen, there's a high chance that the feet are experiencing some damage as well. 

If that does occur, Dr. Whittier recommends to thaw the tissues as quickly as possible. And once the tissues are thawed, you must prevent re-freezing from occurring. Which means housing with heat for several days. Damaged tissues are more prone to re-freeze and can do so very easily.

Girl Shared a Video Of Her Dad Playing The Sax For Cows And We're In Love

Rick Herrmann lives in Oregon and a few days ago, he gave a very wholesome sunset saxophone performance for a bunch of cows. yes, you heard that right. Herrmann started learning how to play the saxophone seven months ago, after years of longing. His wife had the brilliant idea to try out his new talent for a field of local cows. It was truly pretty magical, as you can see from the tweets by his daughter, Erin. What we have learned from this story is that even cows love "Careless Whisper".
