When cows have bad hair days

Two teens from Prince Edward Island have won top prize at the Canadawide Science fair for their study of how bad and ornery cows have certain types of hair patterns on their heads.

You may laugh, but their findings could help farmers by helping them to buy and breed better animals. Ornery cows, other scientists have found, have a correlation between what pattern of hair they have and how much milk they give.
