Looks like your typical nightclub audience to me. Maybe better mannered and more jazz savvy.

I worked for an outfit, years ago, where the truck horns kept going out. A combination of over use and rough ground. The rancher got tired of us having to fix them and on an impulse bought a variety of horns from a pawn shop in Cheyenne, WY.


The cows always came on a run. Some of us got to where we could play a tune or two on those poor, battered instruments.


There was one nut on the crew who would get up in the bed of the truck and had learned to blow some sort of call to battle. The cows he fed knew the sound and would come running. He would then bellow "Shall we march on the Philistines? To which they would "moooo." Always sounded like the 'cast of thousands.'


Fun times.

I grew up on a small dairy farm. Many dairy farmers felt the cows would give more milk if they were relaxed. Dad always had a radio station turned on, in the milk parlor, that played "elevator music". This was many years ago, before the days of computerized milking systems.

Those are dairy cows in that video. It could have been coincidence or music with a purpose, to play for dairy cows.

Livestock aren't stupid. My neighbor runs a couple hundred head of beef on several hundred acres. They know the sound of his truck and the tractor that brings their hay rolls.

Same with horses. I lost my whistler years ago. My horses come in to the sound of my car horn.

Thanks to being raised playing music in the milk parlor, I have experimented with music in the horse barn. I learned hard rock is the worst for amping some of the horses up and making them jittery/not wanting to listen.

They like music that is not screeching and invasive to their ears. They're ok with the boring drone of a talk stations but I'm not, lol
