One dairy farmer in Glastonbury has given his cows waterbeds to help encourage them to produce better milk.

The cows can spend up to 18 hours a day lounging on the water beds and listening to classical music, the farm has been producing Farmhouse Cheddar for over 50 years.

"Cows at Brue Valley Farms, in Glastonbury, Somerset, are also treated to classical music in the milking shed."

Barry White does not seem to work...cows prefer Mozart. I heard that they actually like Simon and Garfunkel. Think I read that in some magazine somewhere.

I wonder what complaint PETA could come up with because of this. You know they've got to have one.

I know this is not exactly on-topic but whenever I see the words waterbed and cow together I think of my ex-wife. You see, I blame a waterbed for my divorce. It was after we got the bed that we started to drift apart.
