Celebrating cultural diversity


LONDON (Reuters) - Cows have regional accents, a group of British farmers claims, and phonetics experts say the idea is not as far-fetched as it sounds.

Lloyd Green, from southwest England, was one of a group of farmers who first noticed the phenomenon.

"I spend a lot of time with my Friesians and they definitely 'moo' with a Somerset drawl," he said, referring to the breed of dairy cow he owns.

"I've spoken to the other farmers in the West Country group and they have noticed a similar development in their own herds.

Is there hope yet for identifying a distinct "Canadian culture"?

You'll know there's a distinct Canadian culture the first time you here someone say, "Let's send out for some Canadian food."
