Goats,milk production and music.
Research and experience has shown that animals also enjoy good music,while its therapeutic to some to others it boosts their productivity. There are music compositions for some animals as well to show that music actually cuts across species and breeds as there are even preferences within species and breeds. This is a story of a farmer that has incorporated the use of classical music in his turkey production. He decided to incorporate the music to stabilize his birds, when he discovered they were uncomfortable/ restless. He started playing classical music to the poults and he discovered that it improved their health and happiness. He has now attracted more visitors to his farm, as they can hear the birds before they are visible. Expansion is the next move on the farmer's agenda because of the success of his birds.more This is how cat music evolved ;David Teie has developed music that’s designed specifically for cats. Teie has been working on “species-specific” music since 2009. He figured starting with cats would be more practical than starting with, say, elephants. The music is supposed to offer our beloved fuzzballs a comforting, enriching experience that allows us to bond more deeply with them.see This season the goats has made history as a farmer discovered that his goats produced more milk after been serenaded to music. The farmer found that his goats produced about 20 percent more milk when serenaded by the trills and lilts of Mariah Carey Studies indicate that music can indeed have an effect on milk production; the theory is that music with a consistent and precise rhythm can calm the animals in what might ordinarily be a stressful situation, and calm animals produce more milk than stressed animals. The connection between music and milk has been known since at least 2001, when a University of Leicester study tested milk production with different kinds of music. The study did not include “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” but did test out some different genres and sounds to see whether the particular type of music could have different effects. What the study found was that calm music—for example, Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water”—seemed to have a positive effect on milk production, while the horrible turn-of-the-millennium club tracks selected by the researchers produced no effect at all. Christmas music, the vast majority of which is calming, slow, and gentle, might be just the genre to play to your cows, goats, sheep, camels, or whatever other animals you might happen to milk. see
