Farmer Serenades Cows by Playing Lorde’s “Royals” on the Trombone

Farm­ers like Derek Klin­gen­berg know that you can enchant cows with music. Above, watch him start play­ing Lorde’s “Roy­als” on the trom­bone and the cows come a run­nin’.

If you’ve been an OC read­er long enough, you won’t be sur­prised by this scene. Ear­li­er this year, we fea­tured A Playlist of Music Sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly-Proven to Increase Cows’ Milk Pro­duc­tion — a playlist that includes tunes by REM, Aretha Franklin, Simon & Gar­funkel, and Lou Reed. And, before that, we’ve shown you cows groov­ing to some New Orleans-style jazz. Music isn’t just “the uni­ver­sal lan­guage of mankind,” as Hen­ry Wadsworth Longfel­low once said. It belongs clear­ly to our bovine friends too…
