Painting Cows To Look Like Zebras Has A Surprising Benefit

Painting cows to look like zebras is a game-changer. Japanese scientists have discovered that the black and white surface of the painted cows’ detours flies from landing on cattle due to the drastic contrast of light.

Cows painted like zebras received fifty percent fewer fly bites which resulted in fewer pesticides being used on the livestock.

Giving cows zebra stripes could save the livestock industry billions per year as well as improved human health and environment. It sounds like a win-win.
