Why does a cow try to mount another cow?

A cow in standing heat will do exactly that when another tries to mount her: instead of walking away to avoid being ridden, she will stand solidly for the other animal, usually for as long as it is on her back. That enables successful mating by the other if he happens to be a bull.

Since cow-cow mounting is an accurate sign that the time is right for taking the cow being mounted (“mountee”) to be bred, and that estrus is imminent in most mounting cows (“mounters”), selection for this behavior was probably coincidental.
