They didn't even try to make that cow VR image realistic, come on, if you are going to go through the trouble of photo shopping a fake VR headset on a cow at least look at where a cow has it's eyes...

Wow, that makes it even worse...  Cows don't look forward very much, there is just enough overlap between the eyes in front to see something coming at them, but close in not much, cows and horses rely on feel and smell to graze.  For VR to work for a cow you would need 2 panels on the sides of the head, not a supersized human VR headset.

Possibly they just modified it to have mirrors on the sides to reflect the front-present screens?

But my concern is that the cows would, ultimately, be likely to become MORE stressed with these.  Because, over time, they'd be walking in the 'pasture' in the VR and repeatedly HIT THINGS they couldn't see (like walking into fences, trees, the broad side of a barn, etc.).  With that they'd ultimately become - through conditioning - afraid to move because they could no longer trust their eyes.  [Have no idea if cows use visual awareness of their legs and hooves for any kind of mental orienting, but the legs no longer being visible at all when they look down to graze could potentially cause problems also.]

Is Mary in the Wu Tang Clan?

I think she's giving the 'Wakanda Forever' salute.
