Please share your theories on why a group of heifers will mount each other in simulated sex. I could imagine a group of young bulls attempting it (or sadly emasculated steers) because by nature, the males are the ones who do the mounting. But heifers will mount each other, too. This makes no sense.

(We used to tell the city kids that the cows were giving each other piggy-back rides.)


It ain't just heifers. Female dogs will do the same. The hierarchical dominance theory suggested might just be the ticket. I have seen female dogs exhibit this behavior towards another female in heat. Something about the pheromones seems to act as a trigger. Dogs are also hierarchy dominated so maybe that's it.

Given that most of the males can look forward to castration followed by a career in hamburger, I'm not sure that's a glass ceiling the heifers want to break through.


lol thnx

Since sex differences don't start until after embryonic development has begun, maybe there's some fuzziness in sex-specific instincts.

Or maybe, like straight girls kissing in a bar, they're just doing it to turn on males.

Chinchillas do this all the time, it is called dominance humping. It isn't sexual per se, but rather it is to prove that you are more capable of holding and dominating the other. The hierarchical equivalent of the donkey punch.

Does it really matter, as long as I'm only thinking about it, and not doing it?

Maybe they're trying to play leapfrog and just can't quite make it?
