'HERD COMMUNITY: THERE'S MORE TO COWS THAN WE THOUGHT, SAY SCIENTISTS'
Eva Botkin-Kowacki, Christian Science Monitor
"It’s lunchtime at Unity Farm Sanctuary, and all the residents are munching away. In the 'Forever Friends' pen, Audrey and Pal gently jostle heads to share the trough.

That may seem strange – especially when social distancing is the behavior du jour – but Audrey and Pal are cattle. And the licking is a way of showing affection and bonding among bovine."
