Put on your glasses and the cow thinks she is standing in a meadow instead of in the barn.

At least one farmer from Turkey is hoping for this effect.

With the help of virtual reality glasses, he wants to convince his animals that they are standing outside despite winter and that they are grazing there with pleasure.

Russian veterinarians had the idea for this.

They tested the glasses and their influence on cows two years ago.

The result: the animals are less afraid and the herd is generally more peaceful.

Above all, milk production should also be increased through the better mood of the animals.

Izzet Kocak, who also likes to play classical music on his animals, gave it a chance.

Obviously with success.

Izzet Kocak, farmer

“We have 100 dairy cows.

On average, a cow gives 22 liters of milk a day.

Two of our cows now give 27 liters.

We owe that to the virtual reality glasses.

The glasses give the cows the feeling of seeing grass, and that is good for the animals.

This is reflected in the milk yield, it increases the quality and quantity of the milk. "

The farmer believes in the unusual method. In order to increase milk production with even more cows, he has already ordered ten more virtual reality glasses.
