Giant Cow Maze Appears in Farm Field - Did UFOs Do It?

This giant cow maze appeared in a farm field in Marienfelde, which is in Germany, a tad Southwest of Berlin. However, this is one time when we know it was not UFOs that were carving up the landscape.

The maze is the work of Germany's Federal Institute of Risk Assessment, which is a government agency dedicated to examining the dangers posed by products in everyday life. The purpose of carving such a complex labyrinth into a corn field was to raise public awareness of the advantages of eating healthy foods and of the potential dangers of harmful substances found in food. Plus they also wanted to explain the digestion process that occurs in a cow's stomach.

One must assume that a successful trip from the cow's mouth through the stomach and digestive tract would educate you on how food travels through a bovine's digestive system. What a way to learn!

However, if memory serves from elementary school science class, don't cows have four stomachs or compartments within their stomach? Perhaps one must actually walk the labyrinth set up by the Institute to understand it all?

HA! Pretty cool! Seems like a lot of trouble to go to just to learn about a cow's digestive system. :D

Jonam, thanks.

Daisy, That is exactly what I thought. But, on the other hand, look what happened, we are in the US talking about some crop cutting they did all the way over in Germany. So maybe it was worthwhile.
