A herd of cows coming in for milking.

A cow weighs about a tonne, or 1000kg, so a herd of 100 cows would apply a force of about 1 meganewton to the ground. When they're coming in for milking , I reckon they could all fit in a 100m×100m area, or a hectare.

What could you justify measuring in microgram-metres per second?
