A recent programme radio here in France
A very serious study undertaken by German researchers, based on a sample of 8000 cows whose behaviour was studied through satellite photography, would seem to show that cows graze and lie to rest along a North/South axis. In other words they are influenced by the earth’s electromagnetic field.
An amazing discovery which is of no use whatsoever ;-) and which I tried to validate by looking at the herds grazing along the 800kms of roads and motorways I was driving along the following day.
No luck… however … the majority of cows in each herd were in fact grazing facing the same direction!
Well, the only thing to do to increase the number of studies of this phenomenon is to have a compass (or a SatNav) in your car and to keep your eyes open wide.
Shall we all have a go?
