they actually had a peta spokes-woman on the radio here yesterday talking about this. Im not sure how she talked about it with a straight face. Even the hard core libs were calling in making fun of her.
What PETA doesn't realize is that it would take tons of women to replace one cow. I managed a dairy for three years and we were getting around 10 gallons of milk per cow per day. a woman might make a quart a day.
I've spent enough time on dairy farms and in the FFA to have my mind racing out of control on this one.
"Sure, she's a little narrow across the hooks and pins, but she has great udder capacity and overall exhibits a lot of dairy character." Is this why Pamela Anderson got the implants?
jcanaday brings up a great point -- where are they going to come up with all those women willing to hook themselves up to milking machines in order to make ice cream? And besides, if milking is cruel, why is PETA advocating cruelty to women? Are they misogynistic?
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
