  • Description

    Out in Logan, Utah, an experiment is being performed on pregnant cows to enable them to have their calves easier and to improve the quality of their milk. (It is common practice for doctors treating pregnant women to encourage them to get plenty of exercise before childbirth). In the case of the cows, they are walked around a fenced-in pen with mechanical paddle prods that also give off gentle electric shocks. Agricultural experts say the paddle-shock treatment enhances muscle tone in the expectant cow, and that the cow yields better quality milk.
