Izzet Kocak, a farmer and cattle breeder in Turkey, has decided to think outside the box to get more milk production from his cows. At first, he tried playing classical music, but when that didn’t work, virtual reality headsets came into the picture. These aren’t used for gaming, but rather green pastures and sunny skies. This is being tested on two cows, and so far, things appear to be working out well.
This experiment is turning out so good that he’s already ordered 10 more virtual reality headsets for the rest of his herd after the initial two subjects started making not only more milk, but also higher quality. These specialized virtual reality headsets from a Moscow-based company also come equipped with speakers that pump out relaxing music.

Virtual reality was first [attempted] by a business in Russia, [and] we saw this by chance on social media. [So], we decided to try it, too. For now, we put it on 2 of our cows and observed the increase in milk production. We are currently in the first trial phase, for the second trial stage we have ordered 10 more virtual reality glasses. If we are successful with them, we will order goggles for our entire herd,” said the farmer.
