Government pays for mattresses for cows to have a good night's sleep

The Daily Mail seem to be sleeping on the job. They haven't picked up on this one yet. Incredible.

The government has given £21,000 to provide mattresses for cows to sleep on in Northern Ireland.

A spokeswoman said: "If you lie on a comfortable bed all night you'll be in good form all day. It's the same for cows".

If all cows in the UK were given mattresses to lie on, I would have said that the Daily Mail in-house calculator would put the resultant cost at....oh...easily £32 Billion.

I can feel the phrase "it beggars belief" coming on.
