A Kansas farmer has gone viral. He's getting calls from media around the world, and even a re-tweet from Ellen Degeneres. It's all for this. That's Derek Klingenberg, playing the song "Royals" by British pop star Lorde, on his trombone. The audience, you may have noticed, is Derek's herd of cattle. On his Facebook page, the talented rancher says he frequently plays trombone for his cattle to calm them and make it easier to round them up. If you listen carefully, you'll even hear the cattle mooing along and responding to the notes. He also throws in treats to keep the livestock happy. Farmer Derek says he's been contacted by CNN, ABC News, NBC News and even a TV network in Japan, who all wanted to use his video. He says he's happy to share the beauty of his Kansas home with the world. The cattle seem to like it, too.
