Cows that watch TV cheer up and produce more milk

Wednesday, 14 April 2010 06:57

A Moscow Region farm is showing movies to their cows to make them produce more milk. The cows “relax” while listening to soothing music as they watch videos featuring Alpine landscapes.
The farm workers installed six large plasma screens, selected 20 cows for the experiment, and divided them into two groups. The first group gets the video and background music, while the second group just has the background music. The farm workers regularly compare the amount of milk produced by the two groups and admit there is not much difference between them.
The experiment will end in mid-April. Meanwhile, those milking the cows are getting bored with it: They say they find listening to the same monotonous music on a loop the whole day very tiring.
