(Yahoo)   The bad news for for dairy cattle is that corn feed is scarcer and costlier than ever. The good news is they are being fed cookies, gummy worms, marshmallows, and fruit loops. The best news is it's a great time to be a bovine dentist   ( ) divider line

Just wanted to point out that Mad cow is caused by species eating their own species. Not just cows eating meat or something. Humans eating other humans has the chance to contract this same disease. Learn how to disease works if you are curious.

This is the same reason why human milk will never be for sale. If you are going to be drinking milk from the same species it needs to be genetically the same, such as your mothers, or you will run the very low risk of this prion disease.

Human breast milk market will not go far. Who wants to drink that milk? Maybe if the woman were on organic diets but that just WONT happen. Or at least STRICT diets. You can be sure that breast milk will be loaded with mcdonalds and taco bell.

Yes, I know but I assumed he meant he wanted the cows to free range graze. And I just don't think that's physically possible unless our cattle population was significantly smaller. Plus the fact that the drought killed all grasses not just corn.

Not to mention the fact that free range grazing makes almost zero sense for dairy cattle.

Aren't we not supposed to drink cow milk anyways?

I'm sorry if you didn't get the genetic upgrade to adlut lactose tolerance. It's awesome, and as a bonus: CHEESE. Lots and lots of CHEESE.

You missed the obvious. Hire human mothers for their milk. A whole new industry is waiting for the sqeamishness barrier to be broken.

Do you know how much room it takes to grow enough grass to satisfy the 95 million cattle in the U.S.? I don't

That is the smuggest cow I have ever seen. I want to punch the cow through my monitor.

Four out of five bovine dentists recommend sugarless cud for their patients who chew cud.

What a bunch of idiots. Letting your cows graze on grass makes for healthy cows and tastier healthier meat. Go back to nature you fools. Stop feeding corn to your cows, and you'll avoid tons of problems and costs. You won't have to waste money to pump them with medicine just to keep them alive.

Maybe they don't have grass to feed them... you know, because of the drought?
