A Kansas farmer has a unique way of calling his cattle – He plays them a trombone rendition of Lorde's "Royals."

Derek Klingenberg is from Flint Hills, Kansas. Taking the stage in front of an empty prairie, Klingenberg plays his trombone until dozens of cows flock from over the hill.

Serenading the cows from his lawnchair, Klingenberg admits the heifers are more interested in a treat than his playing.

On his Facebook page, the farmer states he has been going to the prairie throughout the week to "cube" the cattle, feeding them a treat so it is easier to gather them.

For fun, Klingenberg says he played his trombone to help call the cattle in from long distance.
