Cow herd serenaded by opera star


A herd of Lancashire dairy cows is being serenaded by an Italian opera singer to help improve their milk production.

Farmer Bobby Gill said he hoped the music would help improve the taste of ice cream produced in a Wigan factory with their milk.

Marcello Bedoni has been singing a special selection of opera in one of the fields at the Sabden farm.
