Default The Tai Chi Dairy Farmer



Quote:
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.’

I'm not a dairyman but those look like beef cattle to me.

If those aren't dairy-cattle ... what is it that he's confusing for milk?
