Well, depends on your point of view I guess. If you're in the business
of selling fences you certainly won't feel much for teaching cows to
stay within their lawn without them, nor for making the fences last
forever ;-}. (No offense intended wrt the learning ability of cows
in general; please do not flame me for insulting these fine
intelligent creatures. I'd bet on that most of them pretty much share 
our views on fences, windows and gates ;).
