ANIMAL CALLS (CATTLE)

"TO CALL THE CATTLE IN FROM THE WOODS, MOST OF THE FARMERS IN MY
AREA (ST. CLAIR, MI.) WILL CALL 'COME BAHS, COME BAHS!' SEVERAL
TIMES VERY QUICKLY AND LOUDLY. THIS WILL CAUSE THE CATTLE TO
COME RUNNING UP TO THE BARN. IF THE FARMER DOESN'T FEEL LIKE
CALLING, AS MY GRANDFATHER DID MANY TIMES, HE'LL TURN THE MOTOR
ON IN THE SILO WHICH ACTS AS A DINNER BELL FOR THE CATTLE."

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; SAINT CLAIR

Subject headings: CUSTOM FESTIVAL -- F535
SPEECH -- Onomatopoeia
SPEECH -- To Be Heard

Date learned: 04-00-1984
