TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A Kansas cattle rancher posted a YouTube video showing how he used a camera drone, a feed truck and a herd of cattle to create a "cow art" smiley face.

Derek Klingenberg, who previously made waves with a video of him using a trombone to serenade his cows with a rendition of Lorde's "Royals," used his feed truck to move the cows around a field until they formed the shape of a smiley face, a feat that took several minutes.


Klingenberg had to double back at one point when the cows forming one of the eyes finished their snack and started to disperse.

"I fly a drone over our cattle while I try my hand at Cow Art with the feed truck," the video's description reads.
