Hugging Cows to relieve stress

A wellness trend in Netherlands are farms where people visit and hug the cows spending hours bonding with the calming animals to promote oxytocin which helps stress and well-being.

I found The Gentle Barn operating in Santa Clarita, California has been open for 21 years where visitors can come and hug the cows and other farm animals. Traveling petting zoos with baby farm animals for kids have been around for a long time also.
