Have you ever heard of the band with the cows enjoy music and the group of teens that play the violin? Well get ready and watch the clip because they have a pretty rad sound. A girl plays a violin out on the farm and these cows cant help but listen to the wonderful sounds.

Some say cows have an ear for music, others will rebuke that notion, saying that the sheer sound of a musical instrument confuses the animal, making them ‘complain’ about it. What is the truth about this behavior?

Research confirms that cows have musical preferences and react differently to particular types of music. Exposing cows on an open farm can result to different types of reactions. The kind of music that the cows listened to makes a difference. If the music is loud and reckless then the cows would probably react different than in this scenario. Classical music, on the other hand, seemed to have a calming effect on the cows.

Don't necessarily assume that your cow has anything to do with the music you're playing. It may be mere coincidence. If the yowling continues well after you've turned off the classical music, it's time to investigate any and all of the other potential triggers for your cows vocalization, whether nerves due to loneliness or physical pain.

Cleveland-based musicians Amy Lee, Frank Rosenwein, and Joanna & Mike Zakany decide to test the musical sophistication of cows Kayli, Maybelle, Mike and Maribeth. The results? You'll just have to see it to believe it!
