Runderen die muziek luisteren produceren meer melk.


Koeien geven de voorkeur aan Beethoven boven the Beatles. Ze worden gewoon ontspannen door de kalmerende beat, beweren psychologen aan de Universiteit van Leicester in het Verenigd Koninkrijk, die zeggen dat het blootstellen van runderen aan langzame muziek de melkgift verhoogt.

Runderen en muziek

Muziekonderzoekers Adrian North en Liam MacKenzie testten de effecten van muziek op 1000 Holstein-runderen bij twee zuivelfabrieken. Ze brachten elke dag 9 weken lang snelle (meer dan 120 slagen per minuut), langzame (minder dan 100 slagen per minuut) of geen muziek door van 5 tot 17 uur.

Meer melkproductie door Beethoven

Het resultaat? Koeien die muziek hoorden zoals Beethovens 'Pastoral Symphony' of Simon and Garfunkel's 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' gaven 3% meer melk dan degenen die geen muziek hoorden. Snelle, gierende muziek zoals Bananarama's "Venus" leek een kleine productiedaling te veroorzaken, vonden ze in een nog niet gepubliceerd onderzoek.

Wij geloven dat langzame muziek de dieren ontspant zoals het bij mensen doet.

Stresshormoon bij koeien

De onderzoekers willen nu hun hypothese testen door direct te meten hoe verschillende muzikale diëten de niveaus van stresshormonen bij koeien beïnvloeden. Dierenwelzijnspecialist Lene Munksgaard van het Deense Instituut voor Landbouwwetenschappen op Foulum merkt op dat een onderzoek uit 1989 ook aangaf dat klassieke muziek meer bevorderlijk was voor de melkproductie dan geluid zoals verkeersgeluiden. 

Lene Munksgaard:

"Maar terwijl acute stress de onmiddellijke melkgift zal verlagen, of het waargenomen effect kan worden toegeschreven aan afnemende chronische stress, is speculatie."

Finally, it was. After a year of postponing our wedding, our big day finally came. By corona still a modified version of how we planned it, but getting married we would! We decided together that we would not move our wedding day another year. I haven't regretted that for a second.! Although our 'party' could not take place after the wedding, we certainly made it a party. The day guests consisted of the people closest to us and who love us. You can certainly say that our wedding was a very intimate, loving day. We got married at Landgoed Staverden. Here all day guests came together to witness our YES - word. After we have given each other the YES word, of course, we have toasted together. By the staff of the Estate, the canopy was quickly transformed into sitting tables. Although the guests did have a fixed seat, we as a newlyweds could connect everywhere. The guests had a good time and we had a chat with everyone. The rules were not followed very tightly and so it was a lot together.. Around 4pm the BBQ was thrown on and our food was made. It was a walking buffet and the food was very tasty. After dinner a large ice cream cake was brought and these pieces also went over the counter like hot sandwiches. After dinner closed the terrace, because we were finally still in the terrace closing zone of 18:00. Although time seems tight, we have not had the feeling of having to hurry. After the terrace closed we have with the day guests still made pictures on the Landgoed. Then we opened our house for those who wanted to drink an after-drink. All guests decided to have a drink and so we still had a small party at our home. An hour or 23:00 hours our taxi was at the door. The party ended, our house was closed and we left for our wedding night to a hotel. Despite everything we enjoyed this beautiful day. During our big day there were two photographers present who took beautiful pictures and made our day a beautiful memory. #marrying #photography #Staverden #estatestaverden #wedding #bride #brideegom #mr #mrs #Ja #yeahikwil #weddingdress #weddingphotography #estate #weddinglocation #weddingphoto
