Bovine Backscratcher

By Jeff Eckert, Jenn Eckert

Last and probably least, we have Luna from dairy farm equipment purveyor, Lely ( Apparently, cows have very itchy backs, and that condition makes them extremely unhappy. Unhappy cows produce less milk, so this is a problem. Fortunately, the Luna robotic backscratcher saves the day.

All a critter has to do is walk under it, and the large roller brush starts spinning on demand, taking her to moo-cow nirvana.

According to the company, “The Luna is hugely popular with cows. This brush is great against the itching (useful if you have no hands!).” Additionally, the “ladies” are “elegant looking” after using it. Too bad they don’t offer a human version.
