Is new baldness treatment udder nonsense?

A Colombian hair dresser has come up with what may be the most unusual treatment ever for baldness. Ancizar Duque has developed a regimen that includes a special tonic, and a scalp tongue massage from a cow.
Duque says he has over 200 customers who are willing to pay about $30 US for the treatment which includes a dozen cow licks on their bald areas. The hair tonic and shampoo are extra.
Duque experimented with young cows and even horses, but he says older cows have the concentration to do the tongue massage right.
I tried out a baby cow, he said. But you know, the baby cow was like a child - he had no concentration! He starts licking and then he wants to leave. It is very difficult. I tried and tried. I tried also with goats, I thought maybe a goat would work, it can be maneuvered easily right? No, no. I then tried with horses. No, No.
Duque's customers say they've noticed a difference in their scalps. And they're willing to stick with it, until the cows come home.
