Stuck in Winter, Cows in VR Glasses


The concept of Virtual Reality (VR) is designed to help create an immersive environment where users can truly feel like they are in a different world.

This VR technology has also been widely applied to use in video games. But it turns out that VR technology can also be used in the livestock industry where cows are given VR glasses.

In Aksaray, Turkey, cows trapped indoors during winter will be given VR headsets to wear so they can feel like they are outdoors.

Apparently this is done to encourage cow's milk production. Usually they produce 5.7 gallons of milk per day, after wearing VR glasses, their production reaches 7 gallons per day as reported by us from Ubergizmo, Thursday (13/1/2022).

This is not the first time this method has been used. Several years ago, this concept was tested in Moscow, Russia. VR headsets are used to help cows reduce anxiety and increase milk production.

Aksaray cattle farmer, Izzet Kocak is pleased with the results of these VR glasses. He also intends to buy 10 new glasses so that more cows will use them.
