There right they just don't eat when it's too -- It's too hot for them and well there's other areas here on the farm where it's cooler and they will eat there that when it's -- deal like to be in the -- just like we -- and as a result of this when you don't get.
Cows eating you see him over there they're just -- in initiated walk in the rear -- wanna guys who follow me because I wanna go and show which are -- to keep these cows cool.
