Moo, y'all.

Cows have regional accents, a group of British farmers claims, and phonetics experts say the idea is not as far-fetched as it sounds.

Lloyd Green, from southwest England, was one of a group of farmers who first noticed the phenomenon.

"I spend a lot of time with my Friesians and they definitely 'moo' with a Somerset drawl," he said, referring to the breed of dairy cow he owns.

I don't remember any of the Herefords or Charolais I met in my Southern youth as mooing with a Southern accent, but these farmers may be onto something.

Cows 'moo' with an accent, farmers believe
