Cows have regional accents like humans, language specialists have suggested. They decided to examine the issue after dairy farmers noticed their cows had slightly different moos, depending on which herd they came from.

too funny! I had no idea so many cows have gone missing. They should start a show about it. It could be a weekly call in show.
