Can cattle keep their barns clean?

Scientists research control of excretory behaviour and toilet training in cattle

In cooperation with animal behaviour scientists from The University of Auckland in New Zealand and scientists from the Institute (FLI) for Animal Welfare and Animal Husbandry in Celle, Germany, which belongs to the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute, behavioural biologists at the Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN) are investigating the excretion behaviour of cattle. Can cows keep their barn clean and protect the environment and themselves better against diseases?
