In the increasingly busy and stressful year of 2020, people are looking for peace wherever they meet – from quarreling in the fields to adopting plants. But now there is another natural way to restore your cortisol levels: cow-hug.
In some parts of the world people have begun to embrace the trend of accused well-being, originating in the Netherlands, where it is known as “co nafeln”.
According to the BBC, the practice of beating a cow to bed will reduce stress in humans by releasing the bonding hormone oxytocin.
Cows are specially selected for their body temperature and quiet behavior.

“Cows are very light animals, they don’t fight, they don’t get in trouble,” a farm owner who promotes the practice told the BBC. “You come to the farms and we have some special hugs and you can sleep next to them [them] – People think it’s very comfortable. “

Farms in the United States and Switzerland have also adopted the Wellness Fed, which also benefits cows, according to a 2007 study in the Journal of Applied Animal Behavior Science.
Researchers have found that when animals are rubbed, massaged or have pets, they also experience comfort and pleasure.
“This suggests that cows can make human attacks on parts of the body that are often similarly licked,” the researchers wrote in their study.
