There May Be Dexters In Queensland...

Virtual cattle grids outsmart NT cattle - Australia

A new form of interstate rivalry has developed - are Queensland cattle smarter than those in the Northern Territory?

It seems cattle in the Territory have been outsmarted by virtual cattle grids, white lines painted on the road in place of the traditional metal grids.

But Adrian Rosin, from the north Queensland town of Coen, has told Richard Hudson that cattle in his town are not fooled.

"We actually used to have about two or three bulls that would leap the old barriers, the old ones used to keep the rest out, now the younger ones are just following the bulls straight through, they can walk straight through, go straight through the town and out the other side," he said.

"Do you think we've got more intelligent cattle here in Queensland? Certainly do, actually they could be quite good Olympic jumpers too."
