In some herds, it sometimes occurs that a few or several of the cows start to throw roughage into the ally. When they have this habit, it is very difficult to make them stop.
In the herd on these videos the throwing started several months ago. When they started the roughage was chopped, and much shorter, and it was not that dry. This roughage is from round bales, and there is not a mixer wagon at the farm.
What do you think is the reason for this behavior?
Do you have good suggestions about how to make this behavior stop?
Thank you for any tips.
