Ever wondered how to test olfactory investigation in cattle?

Or if cows like the smell of coffee?

Well, we wondered the same and this resulted in a brand new study, which just came out today.

For the next 50 days the article is freely accessible so please feel free to share: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1Vr6WcF2OSze

Highlights of the study:

  • The first Habituation/Dishabituation Test adapted for and applied to cattle.
  • Cows and heifers can distinguish between complex odours (coffee and orange juice) and show increased interest in coffee
  • A new potential to use odours when adapting or enriching the environment in which we keep cattle?
