2If a cow cries without any reason, there will be calamity; if at night, fear f but if a bull, happiness; if a cow is completely swarmed in front with flies, of obstructed by dogs, there will be rain very soon.
3If cows while coming home with the cry of (…) follow other cows (fondling them), there will be increase of cows in the cow- shed; if they are wet in body, happy or have the hair standing on ends, they bring fortune to their owner. The same remarks apply to she-buffalos as well.
