Dairy cows get big-screen TVs, watch video of green pastures.

Dairy cows who live in tiny, indoor pens must be miserable, reasoned a Russian dairy farmer. So he decided to lift their moods by installing 40-inch LCD TVs above the pens that show video of Swiss Alpine pastures. The farmer is testing his theory by measuring the milk output of the TV-watching cows against a control group of cows that have no TVs.

Putting myself in their hooves, I think I'd just be depressed suddenly discovering everything I didn't know I couldn't have. Hope you'll post follow-up on the outcome of the dairy farmer's experiment.
