Scientists Managed to Potty-Train Cows

They learned to urinate in a 'MooLoo,' and the discovery is more serious than it sounds.

Turns out cows can be potty-trained as easily as toddlers. Maybe easier. Scientists put the task to the test and 11 out of 16 cows learned to use the "MooLoo" when they had to go, per the AP. Just like some parents, the researchers used a sweet treat to coax the cows to push through a gate and urinate in a special pen. And it took only 15 days to train the young calves. Some kids take quite a bit longer.

Another serious side, that I found interesting, informative, and educational, included in the article, is that there are substantial negative environmental impacts from the huge amounts of urine, each cow produces, when roaming.
