Cattle Get Headlights-Horns Standard Equipment (Nov, 1939)
Cattle Get Headlights-Horns Standard Equipment
After several of his livestock had wandered onto dark country roads at night, and been killed by passing automobiles and trucks, an English farmer solved the problem by providing head and tail lights for his cattle. Tiny lamps powered by small dry cells are affixed to the horns and tails of the animals, making them visible to motorists coming from either direction along the roads that border the farm. In the photograph above, one of the tiny headlamp-and-battery units is shown strapped to the horn of a steer.
