This must be moo-sic to the cows’ ears!
A video of a woman calling a herd of cows went viral on the internet and while you might think there is nothing fascinating about gathering cows I’m sure this video will make you think otherwise.
Clad in a white dress, Jonna Jinton, a 26-year-old artist, photographer and blogger, went to the field to perform “Kulning.”
According to a paper published in the journal Academia, Kulning is a Swedish style of singing intended to call cattle, sheep or goats. It is mainly used by herding girls who live in the mountain villages of Sweden.
As Jinton steps in the foggy pasture, she starts doing the Kulning, making beautiful and enchanting sounds that sounded almost like a whistle because of the pitch.
In just a few seconds, the cows, which were at a distance, picked up the sound and started to move towards her, forming lines as if she is about to give a command–like Khaleesi to her dragons in the hit TV show “Game of Thrones.”

Communicating with animas
It has been long thought that humans have a way of communicating with animals. Our ancestors had built certain connections with animals, and such connection perhaps has been retained, making these cows recognize the ancient herding call.
The video has been viewed by thousands of people. Jinton explained on her blog that it was actually her birthday when she decided to do it.
On the night of her birthday, she said she decided to celebrate it with nature and wander at a place that was once cultivated by her ancestors.
She said she liked the idea of knowing whether the cows still remember some of the ancient calls.
“I liked the idea that they might know that feeling. As to be reminded of something that was long, long ago, but they still carry with them in their blood and in their hearts,” she wrote.
According to Mother Nature Work, Kulning is like yodeling, also a form of communication that echoes against mountains and down into valleys. The high-pitched range is meant to travel distances, so even if the animals are far away, they can still hear the call.
