My new favourite word is moo-loo. If you don't know it, look it up. It deserves to be the word of the year.

I'll save you some effort. Interesting research, but the outcome isn't really surprising.

Yes...heard it all now, potty training cows. Why stop there? Sheep, pigs, goats, horses. Where do all the doos and poos go after potty time.

Judging from the hideous state of many public toilets I come across, they'd be better off putting their potty training efforts into the human population.

What public toilets? They are few and far between in Auckland. Those I have seen do tend to be in a disgusting state with doors that don't lock etc.

 

The cows received negative reinforcement when they peed in the wrong place and positive reinforcement when they did the right thing. Until we stop allowing individuals to indulge in their delusional fantasies of how special they are and start enforcing standard (natural hair, socks up, clean shaven etc.) in schools and in the workplace, we won't be seeing an improvement any time soon.

I agree. I include within "public toilet" any toilet the public has access to. McDonald's, for example.

I see it as being more useful in European situations where the herd is kept entirely indoors, although with some work it may help reduce NZ emissions, but only if it becomes more of a true Moo-Loo - at the moment it is essentially just a Moo-rinal.

 

The next part of the research involves automating the training portion: if it can be set up as a standalone station it would definitely increase uptake. Wonder if it could be easily incorporated into Halter, the New Zealand fenceless farm startup.
