Kansas beef producer Derek Klingenberg returns with 'smiling' cow art, captured on drone video

Beef producer Derek Klingenberg does more than raise cows. He raises "smiling" cows.

The Kansas-based rancher used an unmanned aerial vehicle, and clever driving of a grain truck, to capture video of his cows eating in smiley face pattern. He calls it "#CowArt."
