Flehmen Response

Val checks out the baby while dad Fergus does his Elvis impression.

That lip curl is called the Flehmen Response and allows the bull to better detect the hormones from the heifer or cow and whether or not she is in heat 'n such. It's also used for other inter-herd communication. Sooo many ways to figure out what's going on!
