Cows wearing VR goggles give more milk

The goal is not, only the tools used have changed in the last 11 years.

Already in 2010, cattle watched alpine meadows on an LCD TV on a farm near Moscow in order to increase their milk production and improve the quality of their milk. And in 2018, it turned out that cows are giving more milk with Big Data.

Now Turkish farm Izzet Kocak has put virtual reality goggles on her two cattle to boost animal milk production, Turkish state agency Anadolu Ajansi reported. The cows welcomed the idea because they were given 27 liters of milk instead of 22 liters a day. Kocak stated that cattle constantly see green fields through the devices and this gives them a noticeable and measurable emotional boost in milk production, making them much less stressful than their virtual reality glasses-free counterparts.


After the first tests proved successful, the farmer decided to procure 10 additional devices, which is enough for a total of 5 additional animals. This is because cows need two products to immerse themselves in the world of virtual reality. The devices are first tested in Russia and only then sent to Turkey. The goggles have been developed in collaboration with veterinarians to make sure they do not pose a health risk.
