Named cows produce more milk than non-named cows, according to a study of UK dairy farms.
It’s not just a matter of names, though–it’s positive human contact overall that the cows respond well to. Apparently, cows are “happier” and “more relaxed” when they receive personal attention.
So there you go: You need to name your kids, your pets, and your dairy cows.
Good to know! :)
