Cows milk farmers for water beds, massages, other perks5/29/2012
Cows have never had it so cushy. In increasing numbers, dairy farmers are pampering their cattle with massages, chiropractic treatments, water beds, misting stations, mood lighting and classical music in an attempt to boost the quantity and quality of the bovines' milk output. One Ohio farmer admitted his cows were "real skeptical" of the $70,000 water beds he installed for their comfort because they were "real jiggly," but they quickly adapted and now "just jump on and stay there." As a result of such improvements, his cows' milk output increased by more than 10 percent, with fewer impurities. Perhaps the pampering-to-boost-productivity trend will moooove into human workplaces (please?).
What perks would you demand if you were a dairy cow?
