cows wear bells as a means to find them easily when they wander off. If a cow wanders away the farmer is able to locate them by following the sound of their bell.
Traditionally, cows wore bells because of the vast expanses of land that farms covered. Cows roamed all over the farm and would sometimes get lost. Farmers put bells on them so they would be easier to find.
