which direction is north-south.

Even if that's correct, may have more to do with the sun's travel across the sky than anything else. Also the latitude might make a difference? More sun on the side means warmer cows in the northern climes, less sun is cooler cows in the equatorial regions. Maybe equatorial cows graze to the west in the morning, and then when the sun gets in their eyes graze to the east in the evening.

...they'll all go lay under the same tree, every day, even though the mosquitos, fleas and ticks already have that one covered more than the others because of it. Of course a good tree can serve as a trap for such insects, making it easier to get a large number of them at the same time. Ever walk under a cattle tree? Mosquitos come swarming down from the canopy above and the fleas and chiggers attack from below. Spraying just that one area will get rid of most insect plague all at the same time. Spray the ground, fog the canopy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
