Farmers in Australia have a new best friend: a robot shepherd that can herd and watch over farm animals.
We might as well call this girl the Khaleesi of cows.
Utah's Henry Mountains is home to a viable population of genetically pure, disease-free American bison. Researchers say this could open new doors for improved conservation of these animals, which were recently named the U.S. National Mammal.

Recently, a small herd of bison were released in Colorado. This suggests there is hope for the large buffalo that have been struggling to revive themselves ever since populations plummeted in the 1800s.
New research from the University College Dublin shows Cows were domesticated in stages and far more selectively than previous research indicated. DNA analysis indicates ancient British farmers restocked their domesticated herds with still-wild ox specimens called aurochs that grazed throughout areas of Europe, Asia and North Africa.
Land-sharing was found to be counterproductive for retaining biodiversity. A recent study suggests that leaving some land completely untouched, while increasing farming practice solely in other areas, will benefit the evolutionary diversity of bird species.
Previous research has suggested cattle are the next invasive species, being introduced to regions where cows were not previously found. While this has yet to be confirmed, their presence is currently an issue in Mongolia, where these grass-eaters are now overgrazing and destroying vital rangelands, a new study says.
When you're eating a juicy hamburger, you would hardly think that you are affecting the health of the planet - but according to the federal government, you are.
