In Russia figured out how virtual reality affects the health of the cows

Virtual reality Helmets that allow people to feel inside the computer generated world became widely available for purchase only a few years ago. However, today they are used not only in the field of computer games, but also in medicine, as a method of treatment of various mental disorders . Recently, the Russian farmers and employees of technology companies decided to find out whether using virtual reality to affect the emotional state of the cows. To do this, they conducted an experiment, during which the heads of the animals were wearing special hats, like carrying cows from the grey autumn farm in a bright summer field.

Farmers from different countries of the world truly believe that the surrounding conditions and the emotional state of the cows directly affect the quality and quantity of their milk production. For example, some owners of American farms buy special cars with brushes that massage the cows and thus calm them. In Europe farmers provide agricultural livestock high places for walking. In Russia, however, had previously conducted experiments in which the emotional state of the cows tried to influence with classical music. Now, apparently, it is time for virtual reality.

How to improve the quality of cow's milk?

A new experiment, the Ministry of agriculture of Moscow region. It did not disclose the location of the farm and the name of the provided virtual reality helmets Russian companies, but partly shared the results of the study. In the experiment, on the heads of the cows were wearing special helmets, screens and lenses which were adjusted to fit the location of the cow's eyes.

Also, the developers took into account the fact that the cow see the world differently than humans — they see red and slightly perceive green and blue colors. Keeping this in mind, the developers have created a virtual space in the form of a bright summer fields with lush vegetation. It has been demonstrated cows just using the configured virtual reality helmets. The authors of the study declared that cows really began to experience , except that no specific data about the level of anxiety before and after the experiment, they did not provide.

It may well be that using the combination of virtual reality and music therapy, Russian farmers will be able to achieve increased quantity of produced milk. Besides, if being in a virtual summer field and listening classical music cows will feel happier, their milk may become more useful. This assumption , when scientists from the U.S. state of Wisconsin conducted a study during which they observed an increase in the amount of calcium in milk happy cows Jersey breed.
