Russian TV-Watching Cows

Russian TV-Watching Cows

One Russian farmer decided to equip his cow barn with… LED TVs.

He has got from somewhere the information that cows get more happy and productive if they watch the movies with the juicy green fields. So he got a non-stop loop of world’s recognized green Swiss Alpine fields and got the most slim lcd tvs on market in Russia and then called the team of workers to install that all.

Now they go into statistics to measure the outcomes. They compare the results from two groups of cows, one is watching tv another is deprived of this humanity most spread entertainment thing.

People doubt that any of the farm workers could have afford such kind of tv at their homes, so now the old funny story that people are actually slaves for the cows can look even more credible.

      • Well, that depends. If it is a live feed than the wind could be blowing the grass or trees. The lighting will change with the time of day. If there is water in the picture it will ripple and move depending on it’s occupants & etc.

        Nature is never still.

  1. When I saw the title “Russian TV Watching Cows,” I thought this would be a pictorial of Mokba voomans. But now I am sad… harr! LOL!

  2. It’s not really TV is a loop of a pasture that would somehow trick the cow into thinking he’s in the free range. Could it work-I doubt it, but with a change of scenery it may make the cow happier.

  3. When I saw the title “Russian TV-Watching Cows,” I thought this would be a pictorial of Moscow women. But now I am sad… harr!

  4. I don’t think we have enough information to say if it will/will not work.

    Here are some factors I would love to know:

    – Is the picture moving

    – How far up/down are the TVs.

    – Is there sound?

    I believe if there is sound & movement the cows MAY take notice of it.

    If there is not.. then maybe they won’t.

    Also, placement is a huge issue. If it is too far up then I’m not sure the cow will take any notice, however, if it is in full view (or even just slightly) than it will be more likely for then to notice.

    There is just many factors to include. I am interested to see what the results are.

  5. While reading this, I was wondering why they can’t just hang pictures. Really, there wouldn’t be enough movement in the videos to warrant such a price difference. Sure, the scene can change to different scenery every now and then, but if I ran a dairy farm, I’d just get posters, and maybe change the lineup of pictures every few days. The atmosphere in there can’t be good for TV’s. I wouldn’t feel comfortable sending a cow TV back for the warranty, either.

  6. Wow! Cows watching on a LED TV. I now envy them. I don’t even own a television. Anyway, I would prefer if you’ll just set them free or just let them walk and enjoy the real meadow. That would make them really happy, I presume.

  7. LCD TVs are the mainstream stuff that you can buy today but their contrast ratio isn’t that great compard to CRT’s :

  8. Did they first do experiments with brain scans to prove that cows react positively to visual stimuli? I would not have believed this story if the images of the guys installing the screens were not included.
