Parag Shah, director of the dairy farm, said that the idea of playing music is adopted form ancient Hindu mythology.

"The idea of playing music in the cowshed comes from our mythology in which, Lord Krishna used to play flute and cows used to get attracted. Similarly, it is also an Indian concept where we believe that just like human beings, even cows like music. So we play classical music and we sometimes also tune the radio," he said.

He added that the yield has increased about 40 percent.

Speakers are installed across the shed and music, mostly classical and soft, is played throughout the day.

Researches in the West have proven that music acts as a stress reliever and bring several health benefits.
