28 nasty bloated cow corpses to deal with. Being those been brewing in the sun for a few days, it's going to be prutrid.

I would like to think that the lightning cooled them to a nice medium-rare

I was wondering why they looked inflated.  Could have done without you pointing out the prolapse.  I still have half a hot dog to eat.

Yeah but hot dog prolapse casing is mostly synthetic anyhow.

Mostly.

1. They all appear to be lined up against a fence. Are we sure that Farmer Joe didn't turn up the power on the electric fence?

2. Ten or so years ago, on a clear and somewhat muggy night, not a cloud in the sky, the roommate at the time and I were startled awake by a VERY VERY large sound around 2 am. Investigated in our groggy state and went back to our respective rooms, finding nothing.

The next day, we realize the stove and microwave do not work, the TV has a giant line on the display and the air 'smells funny'. Talking with the neighbour, their central A/C and various appliances no longer work either.

Best we could surmise is that a bolt of heat lighting struck, nuking our stuff as it landed. Weirdest thing ever, and happy it was just a few appliances vs an entire A/C unit.

That's quite the front with LOTS of lightening.
From Alaska all the way down to Illinois (and probably further)
I wonder how often the Canadian Artic get thunderstorms?
A few bolts were recorded in the North West Territories on the Artic Ocean and a few in Nunavut.

Well, those silly cows do push their luck sporting two lightning rod "horns" on their heads.
They kinda asked for it.

No, he was too fast.

We had similar when a large tree took a lightning strike. Just bad luck.  It wasn't a lone tree in a field, it was in a grove.  Lost around a dozen cows.  It's a bad deal.  My dad lost his horse in a similar way:  It was getting a drink from a stream in the pasture during a thunderstorm, and a fence across the stream took a lightning bolt maybe twenty yards away.  Dead on the spot.

From the "Steve Dallas" code of conduct, get them to slaughter and sell them as par-cooked beef.

If nunavut lands there, why would they bother recording it?

We find this particular brand of "humor" distasteful and will have Nunavut!

Most of the animals that died were not insured, except for the bull.

Wonder why that is. I quickly googled and it looks like cow insurance exists. You'd think any business would want to insure its inventory, at least up to some loss level.

Somebody get the dynamite. Maybe Minnesota has some to spare.

Uh, "28" would have sufficed.

You know what meats are never affected by lightning? Beyond Meat, Gardeen Burgers, Black Bean Burgers...

// beef production is unsustainable in the long run anyway, might as well cut your losses now and get ahead of the game

Those cattle aren't in a huge feedlot. They are on a small farmers pasture and frankly they are good for that land. But enjoy your pretend near I guess?

His family farm was established in 1912 and is located near Mankota, Sask...

Huh?

...located about 200 kilometres southwest of Moose Jaw.

Well that clears things up.

We were in the NW Ontario wasteland and one of our fishing guides shared a story about how his neighbor failed to mention when he was tossing a dead cow into the back acres for the wolves to work through.

Because he didn't get the news he didn't pull his deer feeder so woke up to a nasty surprise not too far from his porch.

Canada, way too crazy for me.
