At the beginning of May while I was in Germany the word from back home was that rivers were flooding and fields were poaching. Yet in a dry, warm countryside 100km either side of Munich I did not see one beast out in fields full of grass. Acres of solar panel tablets were about the only black things I could see dotted around the fields.

The cattle were there OK, but all were indoors and will stay indoors for their natural life. This is typical of much of continental Europe.
