Farmer Performs Tai Chi to Make Cows Happy

Dairy farmer Rob Taverner believes that a happy cow is a productive cow, so every morning he performs tai chi in front of his herd to get them "in the right moo-d to produce lots of milk":

The 44-year-old organic farmer visits the animals at 9am each day to run through his ten-minute routine of slow movements and breathing techniques – dressed in his distinctive overalls and wellies.

He said: 'Tai chi is all about leaving your problems behind and getting into a better zone and my mood definitely transfers to the cows.

Like all animals, they are very receptive to human emotions and can sense feelings such as relaxation, calmness and happiness.

'Some people think what I do is ridiculous but I have some very content cows and I would do anything to keep them that way. As any good dairy farmer will tell you, a happy cow is a productive cow.'

Actually, the british media kind of disappoints me - normally esp. in GB it is clear that tai chi is one kind of martial arts.... teaching it, I have to put up with that "movement meditation" crap regularly and i guess i am oversensitive now... :D
