Turkey Farmer Makes His Cow Wear VR Goggles To Increase Milk Production by Macsjebs: 9:56am On Jan 20
In an attempt to increase the daily milk yield of his cows, a farmer in Turkey is experimenting with virtual reality goggles that make the bovines think they are in the middle of a green pasture in summer.

İzzet Koçak’s family has been rearing cattle on a farm in Aksaray, Turkey for three generations, and the business has endured for so long because they have always tried to keep up with the times.

Now it’s Izzet’s turn to make sure the family business does well enough to be passed on to the next generation, and he is going all-in on unconventional solutions. After experimenting with soothing music designed to relax the cows, the Turkish farmer is now experimenting with special VR goggles that allegedly make the animals believe that they are grazing in a sunny pasture, instead of a gloomy indoor farm in the middle of winter.

“We get an average of 22 liters of milk daily from our cows,” Koçak told the Anadolu News Agency. “We had 2 of our cows wear virtual reality glasses and watch a vast green pasture all day, and the daily milk production increased up to 27 liters. These glasses are emotionally good for the animals, we noticed that the animals are less stressed. This was reflected both in the milk yield and in the quality of milk.”

The Turkish farmer said that he was inspired by a news article about cows wearing virtual reality goggles on a farm in Russia. He was intrigued about the idea, so he contacted the company making the special bovine goggles and ordered a couple of pairs. Now that he has seen the effect of VR technology he plans to order another 10, and if the milk production rate increases in the same way, he wants to get headsets for all his 180 cows.

“VR was first tried by a business in Russia, we saw this by chance on social media,” İzzet Koçak said. “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.”

Koçak said that he also continues to play music to the cows to make them more relaxed. He monitors their mood and behavior with the help of a tracking system that receives data from a chip attached to the cows’ ankles and claims that the music also makes a big difference.

Man, always looking for new ways to exploit for gains.
This is more of exploitative than innovative.
They're interfering with the course of nature.

There is time and season for everything.
There is a reason why they produce less milk in certain seasons, and tricking their minds and bodies into producing more milk all season round will take its toll on them.
That is animal cruelty.
Even when you overuse your land without resting it, it'll stop yielding much for you overtime.

This is unethical..... Humans, always looking for new ways to exploit

Meanwhile
China be exploiting Africa like cows

nedekid:

The west will give you loans and collect huge interest, imf, world bank, Paris club, USaid etc. Upon the interest they will stress you before giving the loan, they will dictate your affairs, tell you who you should be friends with, interfere in your internal affairs etc. Africa had no alternative so accepted loans when given from the west.
China comes into the fray, gives you loans, infrastructure loans, make sure those loans are used for bridges, airports, seaports, railway, roads by using their construction companies with also employ locals. A beneficial relationship.
Why do you then say China is milking us?
The western lenders, all the billions of loans over the years was stolen by African politicians and returned to western banks in cash, meanwhile interest kept running.
Abeg, forget propaganda from the west loosing influence to China.

They both evil... China will give you infrastructure loan and still ensure you award the contract to them, that is effectively returning their money to them while you still loans to repay.

BTW do we even know the terms and agreements embedded in the loans?? Shebi sometimes back Mr. Ameachi our transport minister was saying it was written in Chinese

And a cow herder here wants the grazing routes of old resurrected. Talk about backwardness
Ahasco:
Did the cow tell you they see the way humans see or view things! you are only coincidentally lucky it increased by 5ltrs, you'd be surprised its only that day you get such increase
There is no coincidence in science. There were series of research that went into producing those VR sets and for the farmer to be considering ordering more shows he is getting visible results

Tech! Meanwhile their Nigerian counterparts won't learn from this but would rather forcibly take other people's farmlands from them and kill/maim anyone in their path.

Re: Turkey Farmer Makes His Cow Wear VR Goggles To Increase Milk Production by PrinceMajestic: 5:28pm On Jan 21
Nice one, but milk yields will always be high with the right balance ration given to them daily + putting the bovines on fattening programmes or use of powerful protein concentrates. Agric is life, F anyone that did not study Agric or animal science related courses, don't comment if you're not an animal scientist or an Agriculturist! It's our personal thread, Mods pls promote Agric n Animal science topics always
