Rainbow Sheep

Good Moo-sic
March 19th, 2021

We all like different music from each other. You and your friend might like some of the same songs, but not every song, and your parents definitely don’t like all the same songs as you. So what about cows: do cows all like the same music? And is there one kind they like best? Scientists studied this a few years ago by playing different songs for cows to see if the cows made more milk during certain songs. They found that when listening to songs with fewer than 100 beats a minute – maybe about 1 beat per second – the cows gave 3% more milk: in the time the farmers normally got 100 cups from them, they now got an extra 3 cups. Even though people have been studying this since the 1930’s, no one’s sure whether music really makes cows make more milk – or more importantly, whether the milk tastes better.
