Over the course of time we have heard many stories on how animals are treated in nice ways to enhance their production in one way or the other. From the sacred Cows of India to Japan where they massage the backs of Koby beef cattle, there is always someone looking for the next good way to enhance production and it seems as though some dairy farmers are turning to waterbeds for their cows claiming it doubles their production.

I recently saw a story on a major news website about a dairy farm in Ohio who had their cows sleeping on waterbeds, yes waterbeds, claiming it helped increase production.  So I wondered if they had just came up with this idea or how it came to be so I did some digging around and found that a dairy in the UK had tried this back in 2007 and claims their dairy cows now produce double.


Fascinating really...who'd a thunk!
