Did you know that a dairy farm in Russia uses VR glasses to make cows give more milk? Yes, we were equally surprised when we got to know this. In RusMoloko dairy, farm cows wear specially designed VR headsets for improved milk productivity.
In their glasses, the cows see sun-filled views of green grazing fields. This helps the cows relax which is directly linked to their milk-productivity.
The summer field views were designed after studying cows’ response to different tones of colors – the cows showed signs of improvement in their mood and decreased anxiety.
The VR headsets were specially adapted to fit cows’ heads.
Experts in the field of technology and dairy farming have collaborated to find a solution to the problem of milk production. They had the solution of perfect-fit VR goggles as a solution to offer a restful atmosphere in addition to fulfilling the cows’ physical needs. However, more studies are underway to study the impact of VR goggles in terms of milk productivity.
