This technological move has much to moo about. A dairy farm in Russia has arranged for virtual reality (VR headsets) for its cows to “reduce their anxiety”.

A BBC report said that the VR systems were especially adapted to fit onto the cattle heads, showing a “unique summer field simulation programme”.

The Russian Ministry of Agriculture and Food quoted research to claim a link between a cow’s emotional experience and milk yield.

Initial tests are said to have boosted the “overall emotional mood of the herd”.
