I'm still wondering how you "force a cow to give too much milk." When she's empty, she's empty. It's not like you can coax a couple more quarts out of her by using a cattle prod, holding a gun to her head, or threatening to turn her calf into veal cutlets.
But on a serious note, this proves that there's no farmers in PETA. Stressed cows produce less milk but eat the same amount of feed. Farming is a symbiotic relationship between a farmer and his stock. If he hurts them, they hurt him by producing less. If he treats them well, they treat him well. PETA also forgets that there's USDA standards for dairy operations. Every milking parlor or barn I've been in was in was so clean it could just about be used as a restaurant. Feces and filth equals contaminated milk that you can't sell.
Didn't I read somewhere that lack of red meat protein in diet affects higher brain functions, and was used by cults to assist in brain-washing people...it would certainly seem to be true from reading that.
I have been told, don't know if it is true, but a true vegatarian must have some form of protien supplement to remain healthy. Is it because we are meat eaters, we still have canine teath, which were meant for tearing meat into swallow sized portions.
PETA is a devote supporter of breastfeeding, with such campaigns as "Breast is Best". They have even been known to have women protest bare breasted to make new mothers "feel less embarrassed about breastfeeding in public".
There's the answer to your question. Now about payment (that $64k). I accept all major credit cards, cash, or cashier's check. You can also make a check out to "Mr. Bit Masher".
I hope your right Saskie! Only a few more human generations and they'll all be gone!
Chechatonga, it is true about the protein. Protein is composed of blocks called amino acids. 20 or so amino acids are used in humans of which 9 cannot be manufactured by the human body and are required for continued existence, thus they must come from what you eat. Sometimes a meal that provides all the 9 essentials is called a "complete protein". This doesn't mean you have to eat meat though to get the 9. There are some rare plants that contain all 9, and also you can combine two plants to make a "complete protein". Example: rice and beans....
Winter is tough on whitetails, that is an accepted fact.
You can help the quality of your herd by providing winter plots - that are not necessarily designed as kill plots.
Having what I call green plots - that the deer can browse in when most of the other food is gone, can greatly benefit the deer herd when they need it most.
Come December - at least in our area of the south - most of the mast is gone, all of the crops were long harvested and this green browse can really make the difference for...
