Holy flaming cow butts! I had no idea this kind of thing could happen. One word for this farmer: "ventilation".

Never heard of such a thing as explosions  from cows breaking wind in the past.  Definitely need more ventilation in barns nowadays.  When I was a kid barns were very aerated.

Wow that barn needed better ventilation.

I hope that cow is ok. I wouldn't want anything to happen to it before it becomes my hamburger.
