No ... But I've watched Dr. Pol on TV tipping them many times.  I was interested to see they get twisted stomachs and to fix it .. They roll the cow into its back and just stitch the stomach to its side and that fixes it!  Sheesh!

No, that's a little out of my age bracket. Not much cattle around here anymore.

Well, anything is possible and humans are quite inventive, but in the way that cow tipping is generally depicted- no. The first issue here is that cows don’t actually sleep while standing up, at least not in the way we tend to think of sleep. Cows do sometimes enter a sort of restful state while standing up, but while in this state they are easily startled and are reasonably well aware of what’s going on around them. Their deep sleep state occurs while they are already lying down (something they do for about 14 hours per day, with a few hours of that time in a deep sleep; the rest of the time they’re either awake or in their light-resting state).
