I had to laugh at the expression on this cow's face.
It's getting a rub-down from the latest thing in dairy farming. The Daily Mail reports:
The animal is enjoying a spell in the cow wash, which, according to its designers DeLaval, is welcome news for farmers as well.
The cow wash boosts milk production by improving the animal's blood circulation and stopping the spread of disease, says the company.
The company has already sold 30,000 cow washes in its native Sweden, and is now bringing the product to the UK.
A spokesman said the cows enjoy the sensation of being brushed and it can boost milk production by 3.5per cent.
. . .
'It is very popular among dairy farmers. Cows using the swinging cow brush are cleaner, calmer and therefore more balanced.'
A study conducted by scientists in the USA found the brush resulted in better animal health due to an increase in blood circulation.

There's only one problem I can foresee . . . if this sort of thing boosts cow production, how long can it be before employers begin installing them in human offices and factories, to give us all a rub-down for productivity's sake?
