So it's no longer GROUND beef

Hey you don't eat a talented cow like this all at once!
 
2009-11-04 11:16:57 AM
Perfectly logical. FDA regulations do not permit the processing of "downer" (can't stand on their own) cattle.

Are you kidding me?? This baby cow was halfway to being the perfect veal!

Too bad. I like lean beef.

"A few people have asked 'Is she going to be beef?' and I said 'Are you kidding? This is my newest baby.'"

He can make it on his own.

Why would people bother doing this?

Just kill the thing and be done with it.

Think of how much it is going to cost as the cow grows bigger and they have to get newer, larger prosthetics to support the massive weight, which will probably just dig into the cow's body and cause pain.

I'll even provide the marinara sauce for some lovely parmigiana.

A bullet would have been a much better investment.

It was only two legs. He would have been LEAN beef.

This will revolutionize beef production forever!!! Imagine- taking each cut of meat at its optimal point of development and leaving the rest to mature- it's amazing!

As a double leg amputee who has cow prostheses, I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

/seriously, I do.

Right....give it a false sense of hope. Then one day.
WHOOP! A retractable bolt to the head.

Pfft. A knife doesn't cost anything, with the added benefit of skinning and butchering the calf once it's dead.

The less active the more tender the beef. What a bad decision

Modified funny-car drag racer commemorative Big Daddy Roth/critter hybrids are a particular favorite.

Spend thousand of $ to save life of animal that was stupid enough to get frostbite in the first place? I mean, shouldn't it have put socks on and a hat?

Meh. Erm, I mean to say, Mooh. Bad investment.

I don't wish to procreate any more. I would be much happier at this point with the bug-eyes and revviness.

Good to know all the humans victims of landmines in need of prosthetic legs have been taken care of and we can now move on to cows.

Well, students need something to get their degree. The only reason why this happened was because someone needed to prove they're worth their diploma.

Certain animals are only bred to be sources of meat, milk, and leather. In nature, most of these breeds would end up as food for the nearest pack of wolves, coyotes and quite possibly a well organised group of crows, ravens or raccoons. Yeah, they've been bred to be pretty much helpless, that was the point.
That being said, any animal that you plan on killing should be killed in as quick and humane way as possible. You have to think "If it were my life being ended, would I be cool with the method of execution?"
Which comes to my next point- if any aliens are monitoring this board and plan to use us for food in the near future and they're willing to be nice about methods of dispatch, lock me in a well-equipped bedroom with Catherine Zeta-Jones. That should do the trick in a day or so. With the cold I've got right now, you could likely have me ready to go in the marinade in a couple hours.
/note for future reference- do not get flu shots when you are just coming down with a cold.
