5 Dutch dairy farmers in Stitswerd, Groningen, witnessed a mystery on Saturday, January 28. Several hundreds of cows from the 5 dairy farmers simultaneously started running riot without a clear cause. The cows bumped into each other and the fences of their cowshed. One of the farmers said that their behavior really looked like agony, so it was not just a moment of frustration for the cows, it was really a life or death situation.
Even more shocking is that the farmers all have experienced these panic attacks from their cows several times before, for the lasts few months. However, these kinds of mysterious events only seem to occur around the small town called Stitswerd.
It was speculated that a raptor bird might have caused the panic attack, however, this can’t be true since it happened at 5 dairy farms simultaneously. A veterinarian has been consulted as well, but she couldn’t find an explanation either. Another possibility is that an earthquake scared the cows, but none of the farmers felt anything themselves. Besides, cows in Groningen should be used to earthquakes due to the regular gas drilling in the province (which is progressively destructive to the land and houses of Groningen by the way, damn fossil fuels!).
The most logical conclusion is that the panic attacks are caused by the recent testing of 5G Wi-Fi in the North of Groningen, exactly were Stitswerd is located! Groningen is the first flat land region where they are testing 5G. Other places are Finland and South-Korea, but there they are testing in urban regions. 5G is being tested on urban and flat land because on flat land there are no obstacles to influence the network signals. Additionally, 5G can be used for self-driving agricultural machinery and to moderate the farming soil and such.
Mystery : What’s the matter with cows in Stitswerd?
What do the cows of Stitswerd do?

Milk farmers in Stitswerd have been struggling with a lot of puzzles lately: their cows regularly panic, run into death anxiety through the stable and are almost unable to calm down.
The phenomenon has occurred since last fall. ”Suddenly you see that they jump and start running at the same time,” says dairy farmer Jan Oudman. ”As they do, the walls of the stable are almost out. They sweat from the unrest. It’s really anxiety. “
Near the neighbors
The strange thing is that this occurs not only in Oudman’s business but also in four or five other companies in the area. At the same time there are also panic on those farms. For example, by farmer Piet van den Berg, the neighbor of Oudman. ”They almost break the tent here,” he summarizes the unrest.
The farmers in Stitswerd have no idea what causes the panic attacks, which occur around three to four times a month. Also, the vet who consulted them does not know. It is more common for cows to be restless, but according to the vet, on this scale and at the same time, several farms are very strange.
‘Head in the air’
“They’re stuck in the sky, it’s like it’s coming from there. I do not think it’s coming through earthquakes, because they’re already used to it, “says Oudman.If the problem also occurs with dairy farmers in other parts of the province, he would like to contact these farmers.
Netherlands : Cows from 5 dairy farmers are running wild by testing 5G network
BY ILONA BEAARD ON JAN 30, 2017
5 dairy farmers in Stitswerd in Groningen stand up for a riddle.
On Saturday, panic broke out with their cows, where it happened earlier in the fall.
170 dairy cows from Adriaan den Dikken from Stitsweard started running back and forth on Saturday after milking.
They walked around like crazy and looked nowhere.
She even bumped into the feeding fence and against the boxing fence.
Den Dikke has already experienced this before, feeding is no longer helpful.
The fear of the cows and bigger than the incentive to eat.
After even a veterinarian has arrived, the cause has not yet been found.
They also thought of a bird of prey, but that is not the case either.
The cows of the 5 dairy farms all ran at the same time.
It really can not be that a bird of prey is hanging over the cows at the same time.
After some searching I came across the following message on Facebook.
I have just called the wife of Boer Oudman in Groningen and told her about testing the G5 network in North Groningen. The cows in her barn are all together (and also at 5 neighboring farms), at exactly the same time in complete panic, begin to sweat, stand fearfully in a corner and almost kill each other. And all this exactly at the same time in 5 neighboring farms. My conclusion is the technicians at the G5 test station in Loppersum. Falcon at the farms test the frequencies. THIS MUST BE KEPT AGAIN? And we absolutely must prevent that 5G network ever comes. Farmer Oudman was very happy with my call and had already heard from more people that it could have to do with testing the G5 network. All support is welcome. written by Kees van Boxtel. ”
If the cows are running out of this, what will it do with our bodies?
Will you help spread this message by sharing it?
Time that more people know this.
Acute panic attacks among Groningen cows
Posted on Thursday, January 26, 2017
Farmers in North Groningen are puzzled. They regularly see acute and severe panic attacks among their dairy cattle. The cows then run through the stable in complete mortal fear. The Oudman family from Stitswerd is now looking for publicity. ”We would like to know what is going on,” says Hilma Oudman.
Her husband Jan can not get on the phone, who is in the yard to speak to reporters. RTV Noord has already been there and now there are teams from BNR and NPO3, says Hilma.
It is therefore a special phenomenon: complete couples of cows that panic from one moment to the next and run through the stable like flies, fly on top of each other and go down. This has happened at least three times since October, according to the farmer’s wife. The last time was on Saturday morning, shortly after seven.
,, And it happened not only with us. Also with our neighbor, Piet van der Berg, and on the company of my brother-in-law Henk Oudman, a few kilometers away. “She has heard a similar story from a cattle farmer from Grijpskerk. ,, It is close to a natural gas storage; he thought that perhaps some gas had escaped. ”
The cattle farmers involved are in the middle of the Groningen earthquake area. And animals are often sensitive to soil vibrations. Yet it can not be down to that, according to Hilma Oudman: “Our cows are used to earthquakes. It happened that we were shaking in bed, but that we could not notice anything about the cows. ”
Sweating of fear
Moreover, that does not explain why the panic attacks have only occurred since October. ”It is as if the cows smell something,” says Hilma. ”You can see that a couple at the same time put the head in the air, and then the panic hits. They are terrified, they are really sweating with fear. They may be running for a quarter of an hour, but the whole day they will still suffer. They remain very anxious and alert. ”
Cows are herd animals, and the fear of one cow can easily spread to the rest in a couple.But that explanation is not logical either, since anxiety attacks occur at several dairy farms at the same time.
The first time it happened was on an evening in October last year. Most cows were already in the barn, but they still had free access to the pasture. ”They all ran out in a panic all at once, and they did not dare to go inside all night”, says Hilma.
Further in the stall season the cows have also been panic a few times. Fortunately, no serious accidents have occurred yet, according to the cattle keeper. ”We have one cow with a teat catch, but it can be much worse if they fly out of the corner.”
‘Wondering if there are more farmers’
“We really have no idea where it can be. We are curious to see if there are more farmers who suffer from this. “And, who knows, there are researchers or veterinarians who can give an explanation for this, Hilma hopes. ”Or scientists who feel called to investigate this.”
