When cows are mooing, are they talking to each other, or is it random sound?

Asked by elbanditoroso (31976points) January 18th, 2021

My back-yard neighbor put his cows in the back pasture today, and they have been lowing all afternoon and into the evening. There are at least two, maybe three.

Are they conversing? Is there meaning to one making a sound and another answering? Or is it just random noise with no communication going on?

I like this Q very much. I googled and found out cows do talk to each other. Seems they communicate their emotions. Here’s the article.

I just asked google and it said that when cows are moved from one farm to another they will often moo to new friends to try to figure out their surroundings. So I guess it’s safe to say that they are communicating.
