A comedy routine by a zany TV performer has left a herd of cows udderly amoosed.

Milton Jones, who has appeared on BBC's Mock the Week, performed for some Friesians at a farm in Hertfordshire to see if he could get any laughs.

The comic said: "Writing comedy for cows was very different to my day job but a comedian plays to his audience, so I wrote a raft of new material to really get under their hides.

"They were a tough crowd to begin with, although I've played to tougher, and whilst I tried not to milk it too much when I was up there, in the end I can say hand on heart they were udderly brilliant."

"Cow expert" Bruce Woodacre said that the animals had their mouths open and ears back, which showed they were "relaxed and content".

The stunt was to raise publicity for The Laughing Cow cheese.
