So here’s something that apparently happens in the United States: cow floating. From a 2011 article in the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel by Karen Herzog:
When Chloe, the ailing Holstein cow, went down and couldn’t get up on the hottest day of the year Wednesday, her owner did what many modern Dairyland farmers would do:
He called a cow floater.
Thanks to her own buoyancy, Chloe began to float as a special tank she was moved into was filled with 80-degree water. Buoyancy reduced the weight she had to bear as she scrambled to get her footing.
The plan is for Chloe to receive 18 to 24 hours of water therapy to relax her muscles, reduce swelling and boost circulation before the water is drained Friday in hopes that she will walk out of the tank.
I cannot think of a single thing to say about this.
