There's Now A Tinder-Like App For Cows Searching For Their Perfect Match

I guess cows need love too?

A new app specifically marketing itself as "Tinder for cows" has been released. It's called Tudder and it's more useful than you might think.


Tudder provides a similar interface as Tinder, giving pictures and a little more information about the cows on the platform. All you have to do is swipe and hope for a match!

…This is a joke, right?





While, no, the cows aren't going on dates, this app is very useful to find proper breeding matches for the animals.

The app allows farmers to sift through cattle, swiping left and right on different cattle. If they find a match, they are taken to the UK website SellMyLivestock to get more information about the animal before purchase.

Doug Bairner, the CEO of UK-based Hectare Agritech, felt the idea made sense.

"Matching livestock online is even easier than it is to match humans because there's a huge amount of data that sits behind these wonderful animals that predicts what their offspring will be."

Among the data farmers can use when trying to find a date for their stallion of a bull is milk yield, protein content, and even calving potential.

Much of the information is taken directly from SellMyLivestock, and this app dropped just in time for Valentine's Day, so one can assume it's just a bit of fun.

The fact the app also carries a disclaimer saying, "This is meant to be a bit of fun," also supports this idea.






A genuine Tudder user, cattle farmer James Bridger, believes the app is useful.

"You've got all this data of its background and everything which if you're at a market you might not have had the time to go through for every single random animal."

The app also means you don't have to transport the animal back and forth for potential buyers to be able to see it.

"There's nothing better than seeing an animal in its home, its natural habitat, rather than putting it on a lorry.
"If someone rings up and wants to come and have a look, or even getting it from the picture, it's ideal really from that respect and they're happier for it."

Doug Bairner believes his app has other potential with other animals.

"Sheep breeding is similarly data driven, so maybe 'ewe-Harmony' should be next."

Not bad, but maybe the internet can do a better job of finding the next great dating app.






Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Whether or not more concrete proof is needed, others might go a step further in faking their ailment, be it a cold or fever, and often pull off fairly convincing performances.

Sometimes even fooling a doctor.

Every kid has their own strengths and talents. However, in school, some of us are singled out as being ‘gifted.’

This could mean a variety of things, from getting exceptionally good grades to having a unique way of thinking or understanding topics that aren’t seen in other students.

Often, when a student is labeled “gifted,” it is assumed they will be successful in later life.

However, Reddit has proven that this is not always the case.

Sometimes gifted students are successful but to a normal degree. They have the same careers and achievements as students who weren't labeled gifted. Other times, these students are not successful at all and being labeled “gifted” ended up damaging.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
