Why do Cows lie down in the Rain?
Theories abound on this matter. Some say that cows can sense the changes in atmospheric pressure that occur before rain and will lie down to keep their sensitive underbelly dry. A similar suggestion is that they just want to preserve a dry patch of grass to lie on. However, the most prevailing opinion is that they just lie down when they are full and content and that any correlation with rain showers is coincidence.
