Cows have built in magnetic compass

One interesting discovery is that cows will align themselves in a north south direction attuned to earth's magnetic field. Well, as most of you know, the earth has grid point and magnetic vortex that cattle avoid. This is known as the Hartmann Grid. At the crossing of two magnetic grid lines is a powerful anomaly known as a vortex.

Most animals will avoid this areas, but certain animals like cats are attracted to it. I found that birds in a cage go crazy when over a vortex. Cattle tend to avoid the bare area "bald spot" of the magnetic grid point vortex.
