    Yes, studies were done comparing rooster crows around the world. They're different.
  6. I noticed a whole herd of cows saying mayyyyyyyyyyyiii{little squeek at the end} when I was in New Brunswick. It was very noticable, so much so, that I commented on the accent to my host, who being Canadian, claimed it was I who moo'ed funny.
  7. Do any go "moof?" :smile:

    Are you sure the farmers haven't just been out in the sun too long? :rofl: I wonder if it's due to local breeding selecting different "voices."
