Russian cows fitted with VR headsets

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Russian cows have been given virtual reality headsets in a bid to boost milk yields by making the animals think they live in a permanently sunny pasture.

The Moscow agriculture ministry, which announced the pilot project at a large dairy farm outside the capital, cited research that happy cows produce more milk, saying “the quantity, and sometimes the quality of milk increases markedly in a calm atmosphere.”

In what is believed to be a world first, the RusMoloko farm has partnered with researchers and veterinarians to implement a special VR programme developed specifically for cows.

"....making the animals think they live in a permanently sunny pasture "

The quicker they make them for us in Scotland, the better for everybody (the bigger the whisky and shortbread yield).

Too many parallels to choose from. Just keep your Disney+ distraction devices on your face while you are milked.

I would think that looking at all of that beautiful tall grass and not being able to get to it and eat some of it would be frustrating. It would be like putting the cow in a cage in the middle of the field where she couldn't reach to the good stuff.
