Tenors to swing sweet moosic to cows in Limerick

Opera trio Two and a Half Tenors are going to sing to what may one day become their supper.

The group will "churn" out a few tunes at a free open air concert in a farmyard beside the historic Sarsfield’s Rock in Pallasgreen, Co Limerick on June 25.

Local farmers are hoping it will be a boost to both milk and meat quality over the coming months.

Are they sure the cows wouldn't prefer some Moody Blues?

Classical music is often played to Kobe beef cattle in Japan, which supply the most expensive steak in the world, while Italian Valdostana cows’ milk is renowned for its significant contribution to the production of the best gelato, largely because of their enjoyment of opera while grazing.

Who knew that cows love moosic so much?

Now, Irish farmers are set to find out if their cows are happier because of what music they "herd".

The tenors might be in for a tough gig, as this opera singer in Lancashire found out that cows are not exactly the most demonstrative in their appreciation.
