Just when we thought it was safe to go back into farmyards after the exploding pig episode back in 2013 :

Now we have cows setting fire to stables due to their farts :
Methane gas from 90 flatulent cows exploded in a German farm shed on Monday, damaging the roof and injuring one of the animals, police said.
High levels of the gas had built up in the structure in the central German town of Rasdorf, then "a static electric charge caused the gas to explode
with flashes of flames," the force said in a statement.
One cow was treated for burns, a police spokesman added.

The fire apparently started off by the methane gas reacting to static electricity from a massage machine...

Right back to what I am deciding to eat tonight.... beans on toast maybe?
I will definately not be asking Mrs R for a massage tonight.
