Do Cows in VR Produce Better Quality Milk?

VR News: This has to be one of the strangest things in VR news I have seen for a long time, but a study by some Russian dairy farmers shows cows in VR really can produce a better quality of milk! Not only is that weird, but the cows also go their own VR headset to use! Leah Asmelash from CNN finds out more – https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/27/us/virtual-reality-russian-dairy-farm-cows-trnd/index.html





My Thoughts: Reading through the findings of this weird experiment it kind of only proved that cows produce a better quality of milk when their environmental conditions match their needs. So a virtual field for the cows to graze in can trick a cow into thinking it is in a happier situation than it probably is. I just hope this doesn’t lead to hundreds of cows in VR on treadmills just so a farm can house them inside a barn for all their lives.
