Florida dairy farmer Ed Henderson has been playing the trombone since elementary school. And these days his audience, well, fits the scenery. Turns out, cows love jazz music!
What began as a one-off backyard practice session, has turned into a regular gig that Henderson says entertains and pleases his audience of 6,800 or so cows. Hey, whatever works!
Studies are learning that music is beneficial to animals and Henderson needs to practice, so this arrangement is a good thing for both man and animals.
The research was done in the context of seeing if relaxing music helped dairy cows produce more milk.
