Looks like an Indian University is developing a program that, in the words of one researcher:

We will know the future of the animal right at its birth and that’s why we are calling it a horoscope.

Only it's not what you think . . .


In scientific terminology, it’s called a molecular genetic characterisation micro array.

The article is here (http://cities.expressindia.com/fullstory.php?newsid=126226). No bad astronomy involved, despite the title of the thread (and the article).

Taking your title at face value, even if it is a little cheesy, one has to wonder what the result would be when a cow's planet crosses the plane of the Milky Way. http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/566/iconwink6tn.gif

One might predict udder catastrophe!
