    Oregon farmer buys hundreds of water beds for his cows
    By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News |

    At least four dairies in Oregon's Willamette Valley have bought into the "new thing" in dairy farming: buying water beds for their cows.

    "As the cow gets ready to lie down, water moves to the front bag where her knees will come first therefore cushion it more. Less sores, less cows being stuck. Happier cows, happier milk," said Ben Van Loon. … 30086.html
    Well I thought this was a joke but apparently the cows are happy to lie on a soft bed as they are being milked... big_smile
