It was something I had never seen before.  One calf was peeing.  It was a bull calf.  A second calf came right to his underside and began drinking with great relish the pure liquid coming out.  Perhaps to calf Number Two it must have been like a smoothie.  Incidentally, a third calf was looking on.  All three were nestled together.

Vishal and Yasomati, a dynamic husband and wife team, had both been telling Gaura and I—their visitors to the farm—that the cows and bulls have a different way of urinating.  I believe they were saying that not just their breed of Indian girs but all bovine show this characteristic.  "When cows pee it comes out like a shower.  When bulls do it, it works like a tap or faucet.  It takes its time," said Vishal.

We found this extremely interesting and saw first-hand that the young bull was spontaneously demonstrating his approach.
In case we humans find the drinking of cows / bull urine to be weird, we might do a quick online look at the subject.  "Cow urine is a Divine medicine and is used for treatment of diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, psoriasis, eczema, heart attack, blockage in arteries, fits, cancer, AIDS, piles, prostate, arthritis, migraine, thyroid, ulcer, acidity, constipation and gynaecological problems.  It is also a bio enhancer.  Astounding!” ( )

For vegans, who will not touch cow's milk with a ten-foot pole, consider this Ayurvedic alternative, and  maybe cup your hands for the next bull or cow gush coming your way.
