T.. contends that music will induce a
cow to give more milk than she would
if not thus encouraged and soothed.
Tests have been made with Guernsey
and Holstein cows, and they, after be
ing milked dry, gave more milk when
an electrically operated phonograph
was started. f
Other cows were milked with the
phonograph playing continuously dur
ing the milking period, and gave from
10 to 12 per cent more milk than their
usual volume. ,
"The music which, accomplished this
feat was classical, all of a. slow meas
ured cadence," says the Milk News.
This may be the real sol ul ion for
the" high- cost - of living problem.
Who knows? A phonograph in every
hencoop might increase the supply -of
breakfast eggs. A piano in the pigpen
may produce larger slices of bacon.
