This isn’t the first time Derek Klingenberg has hit it big with something cow related. A few months back he became a viral hit when he posted a video of himself playing the Lorde tune "Royals" on trombone as his cattle watched.
Now the bovine big man has kicked things up a bit. A few hundred feet, to be exact.
Klingenberg used his farm truck to drop feed in a giant smiley face pattern. Then he waited for the cows to gather at the spots and took video of them with a drone.
UPI reports the ambitious farmer had to drop more feed when the cows forming one of the eyes finished their treat ad began wandering off.
See the “how to” video below.

Police said a driver who did not stop for a red light at the intersection of Brookshire Boulevard and Interstate 85 caused a four-car crash Saturday morning.
The person was driving a 2002 Ford Crown Victoria around 1:30 a.m. and when they failed to stop for the light, hit the left side of a 2007 Ford Freestar van, authorities said.
When the Crown Victoria rotated, it hit another car, a 2000 Toyota Camry. The Camry continued the domino effect and hit the right side of a 2012 Cadillac.
Police said the driver of the car that caused the accident, the Crown Victoria, was taken to CMC with life-threatening injuries. The driver’s name has not been released. Police said speed and alcohol use are contributing factors to the crash.
Two of the other drivers involved in the crash suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were also taken to CMC.
Any person who witnessed the crash or has information about the case is asked to call Detective Sammis at 704-336-8862 or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.

The National Retail Federation estimates the average person watching the Super Bowl on TV will spend $77.88 this year, up $9.61 from last year. NRF officials say renewed confidence in the economy is likely behind the increase.
The NRF got these findings from its Super Bowl Spending Survey, which shows of the more than 75 percent of participants planning to watch the game. Nearly eight in 10 will purchase food and beverages, nearly 11 in 100 will buy team apparel, nearly nine in 100 will even buy a new TV.
"Retailers will take full advantage of the expected traffic from avid fans by making sure they have adequately invested in décor, party food and accessories and other Super Bowl-related inventory," NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said.
One of biggest benefactors of the Super Bowl retail spike will likely be chicken wing producers, as America is expected to eat 1.25 billion chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday.
Bloomberg reports farmers have been giving chickens extra feed to fatten them up in anticipation of the Super Bowl, but a smaller supply of actual chickens has caused the price of chicken wings to rise 6.6 percent this month to $1.69 a pound.
And, of course, restaurants and bars are also expected to enjoy increased business during the Super Bowl. More than 13 million people are planning to watch the big game at a bar or tavern, according to the report.
NRF estimates total Super Bowl spending will reach $14.3 billion.News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
