Sexting and …….. Cows (actually, that should read: Sexting FROM Cows)

According to Wikipedia:

“Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photographs, primarily between mobile phones.”

In Switzerland, some serious sexting is going on.

Cows are sending these “come hither” text messages to their farmers.

Yes, you read that right.

The farmers are getting text messages from their cows.

Apparently, it’s not that easy to tell when a cow is in heat. Several professors at a college in Bern have developed a special device to help the farmers know when the time is right. This device is implanted in the cow and can detect subtle changes that signify when the cow goes into reproductive mode. And when the critical time occurs…… the farmer receives a text message that Bessie (or whoever) is in heat. Success rate is about 90%.

The device is still in its testing stage, but it is expected to be on the market as early as next year.

If you are interested in exactly why it is important for a farmer to determine if a cow is in an amorous mood, you can learn all about it, here.

    • Oh, my goodness! Another monitor to check on cows. It must be terribly important! This looks less intrusive than the kind I mentioned in the blog post. I think if I was a cow, I’d go with your ankle bracelet. :)
