Farmers In Switzerland Are Making Giant Holes In The Stomach Of The Cows For This Strange Reason

Farmers in Switzerland have fitted nearly 14 cows with fistulas or cannulas. It's an external pipeline which connects to the digestive track of the cow. With its help, the farmers can easily access and examine it. 

A research was conducted following which the cows were fitted with these cannulas. The farmers needed a better understanding of the cow's nutrition and how the animal was able to process the food. It would help them improve farming methods and pay attention to cattle raising.

Farmers are coming up with new-age methods for farming, and this just happens to be an amazing one. 

8-inch cannulas are fixed in their sides.

These cannulas end up in their digestive track allowing farmers to examine it in order to see how the animal is processing food. It comes with rubber plugs at the end and can be shut when the farmers are done with examining. 

This is being used as an experiment.

Different varieties of oats and other crops are being tested in the digestive track of the cows. According to how well the cow can process the crops, further research on them shall be conducted. 

This practice was done way back in 1920s.

The cannula is inserted surgically and a rest period is given to the cow to recover from the procedure. After the rest period, the cow can be put under examination for testing of various crops. 

This greatly helps improving cattle raising.

Healthier varieties of crops can be found out for cows in this manner to raise a better batch of cattle. That way, the products obtained from these cattle can be improved as well. 

The fistulated cows also have a longer life span.

Earlier on, it was rumored that the cows going through this process are likely to be harmed, but after an investigation conducted by the animal care department, it was found out otherwise. Cattle receiving the cannulas tend to live a longer life due to the care that is given to them. 

This practice is spreading across the globe.

After hearing about the success of this venture, many farmers in Europe and USA are employing this technique to raise the cattles in a better manner. 

It seems promising.
