There are interesting interactions between individuals, such as friendship, kinship, group formation, leading and following. There are complex interactions with the environment, such as looking for a water source in a new paddock by perimeter tracing along the fence and random walking within the perimeter. Cattle have demonstrated spatial memory that influences habitat use [14] and also memory capable of recognizing peers and humans.
