An article essentially about devices produced to communicate with dogs and cows. Bowlingal, made by a japanese manufactorer, is commercially sold to interpret what a dogs bark means. The device records the bark and then translates it into text for a human to read. Researchers in Germany have developed a similar device that records a cow's moos that is geared more towards a farmer. With its accuracy being 90%, it is said to be most effective to determine the prime mating time for the cow, which could benefit a farmer significantly when breeding cows. The article also briefly explains Jim Nollman's process when he communicates with orca whales.
