According to this article cows both graze and sleep aligning themselves north south along the magnetic plane. The article also states that there is some evidence that those who sleep east west have much shorter REM sleep cycles. I don't knoew if there is anything to this, but i know i switched my bed to east west a few years back and have had sleep troubles ever since. Couch is North south and I do just fine on that.
