This was taken from "Telemanagement, The Angus Report on Communications
Systems, Services, and Strategies":  According to "America's Network"
magazine, a Texas rancher has equipped some of his cows with beepers.
They've been trained to associate the beep with feeding, so when he wants
them to come to the barn, the rancher just dials the pager number.  The
beeper-equipped cows start heading home, and the others -- cows being cows
-- just follow the leaders.  That's right.  You can even drive cattle on
the information highway! -- Karen Kervin, Basking Ridge, N.J.
