  2. I grew up in rural East Texas, and my family leased our land to cattle owners. Whenever my sister practiced her saxophone outside, the cows came running over to the fence, thinking it was feeding time.

  3. If you were standing out in a field doing basically nothing and two clowns like this started up, wouldn't you stop and walk over to check it out? Not that remarkable.

  7. They do the same thing if you yell, "Hey cows!". I convinced my city-boy ex that I had them trained.

  8. I think it's the sound / frequency that sounds like a cow's mooing that attracts them.

  9. Having grown up in Kansas, I know that cows will come to ANY person in sight in hopes of being fed. The musicians could have been fingering their rings and the moo-moos would have still been standing there attentively watching.
