Cows: They’re tasty, they’re full of milk that is part of this complete breakfast, but are they dumb? We tend to think of farm animals as stupid and docile–completely under our control. We forget, of course, the bloody coup that was George Orwell’s Animal Farm.
A recent study in England (not that we can trust the Europeans, either) found that cows may not be so stupid, but rather, the needy, selfish beasts we all fear they could be. Apparently, if you love your cow (in which ever way you choose) and name it, the cow will produce more milk.
Cows need your attention and need to be told they are doing a good job. Why do they need this? Because they understand English!
