Cows have regional accents like humans, language specialists have suggested.

They decided to examine the issue after dairy farmers noticed their cows had slightly different moos, depending on which herd they came from.

So can you please make a tape recording of your local cows so that we can compare moos :biggrin:

This story's hit GD a few weeks ago (I think it was ZZ's thread).

A more recent related story is the request (by Brit scientists, I think) to use bovine eggs to carry human DNA for making stem cells (or somesuch...I'll find a link).

Wolly, I live in the city, the best I can do is the heavy lady across the street in her black and white house dress, yelling at her husband. Would that do?
