The Cow Whisperer

Robert Cohen found this at a dotcom called cattlenetwork.

A Cow's Wish List (written by a cattleman) http://www.cattlenetwork.com/content.asp?contentid=16021

EDITORS NOTE; THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE TRAGIC FATE OF CATTLE. IT IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THESE PRACTICES BUT IS AN EDUCATIONAL ARTICLE ON THE CRUELTIES AND ABUSE THESE ANIMALS EXPERIENCE BY THE MEAT AND MILK INDUSTRY.  ANIMALS ARE NOT A COMMODITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This list consists of sixteen cow wishes, as translated
from Mooish into English by John B. Hall, Extension Animal
Scientist, Virginia Tech. "ROBERT COHENS comments are in caps."

A Cow's Wish List (written by a cattleman)

http://www.cattlenetwork.com/content.asp?contentid=16021

This list consists of sixteen cow wishes, as translated
from Mooish into English by John B. Hall, Extension Animal
Scientist, Virginia Tech. My own comments are in caps.

1. Good working facilities - so I don't get hurt

(THREE MILLION MILKING COWS ARE TO BECOME HURT OR DISEASED IN 2006 AND WILL BE SENT TO SLAUGHTER)

2. Improved pasture management for better grazing

(MOST OF AMERICA'S COWS NEVER SEE A PASTURE)

3. A premise ID and records to enhance my calf's and my own
marketability

(THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION: EAR TAGS FOR EVERY ANIMAL SO THAT MAD COW CASES CAN BE TRACED DIRECTLY TO SUPERMARKETS AND BURGER JOINTS)

4. A good free choice loose mineral with high copper and
selenium

(COWS ARE TURNED INTO EVEN MORE EFFICIENT CHEMICAL MACHINES)

5. Regular body condition checks to decide when to supplement

(LABOR'S EXPENSIVE, BUT THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR MORE ILLEGAL MIGRANT IMMIGRANTS FROM COSTA RICA AND MEXICO TO WORK IN ABUSIVE SLAVE-LIKE CONDITIONS AND BE UNDERPAID)

6. A bull that meets VQA requirements, maybe even an AI bull

(AMERICA'S DAIRY FARMERS ARE CREATING ONE HOMOGENIZED HERD FROM LESS THAN A FEW DOZEN SPERM DONORS. IN THEIR IDEAL WORD, THERE WILL ONE DAY BE JUST ONE SEXUALLY SATISFIED BULL)

7. Attention during calving - sometimes I need help or my
calf is weak

(IMAGINE THE MAYHEM OF HUNDREDS OF COWS SIMULTANEOUSLY BIRTHING CALVES 24/7/365 ON FACTORY FARMS...THE FIRST BIT OF ATTENTION
CALVES GET IS TO BE FOREVER SEPARATED FROM THEIR MOTHERS. THE  MOST INHUMANE SOUND IN THE WORLD IS THE CONTINUOUS CRYING FROM TENS OF THOUSANDS OF SEPARATED BABES, AND AN EQUAL NUMBER OF  ANGRY AND TRAUMATIZED MOTHERS)

8. A 60 to 90 day breeding season, I don't like that bull
that much

(THE AUTHOR INJECTS HUMOR, JUST AS THE A.I. MAN INJECTS  SPERM. IN NEITHER CASE IS THE LAUGHTER APPRECIATED)

9. A complete vaccination program that includes lepto

(LEPTO IS THE GOOD NEWS. E-COLI, SALMONELLA, MYCOBACTERIUM PARATUBERCULOSIS. THESE ARE THE DISEASES THAT AFFECT OUR CHILDREN, AND ANTIBIOTICS HAVE CREATED EMERGING DISEASES THAT THREATEN DAIRY CONSUMERS)

10. Process my calf at birth so he gets a good start and is
identified

(DUE PROCESS ROBS DIGNITY FROM SUCH CREATURES. THE MALES WILL BECOME VEAL. THE FEMALES WILL CONTINUE THE CIRCLE WHICH LACKS COMPASSION)

11. Dewormer for my calves, but none for me.
I'm resistant to worms!

(EVERY MEAT EATER SHOULD WITNESS THE WORMING STATION AT THE POINT OF SLAUGHTER. NO HUMAN IS RESISTANT TO WORMS GROWING WITHIN CATTLE. GOT TRICHINOSIS?)

12. Control of those darn flies

(FARMERS CUT OFF THEIR TAILS WITH A CARVING KNIFE, DID YOU EVER SEE SUCH A SIGHT IN YOUR LIFE? LACKING TAILS TO SHOO AWAY FLIES FROM THE MUST OFFENSIVE END F A COW'S BODY, THE COW IS HELPLESS AGAINST BITES FROM AGGRESSIVE FLIES. YES, VIRGINIA, THE FECES DRIPS INTO THE MILK, BUT IT IS FILTERED.
YOU MERELY DRINK THE ESSENCE)

13. A vaccination and weaning program for my calf so he
won't get sick

(WHO EATS THE ILLEGAL VACCINE RESIDUES? HUMANS, OF COURSE.
IT IS ILLEGAL TO INJECT LACTATING COWS WITH LS-50, YET, THAT DRUG IS THE MOST COMMONLY FOUND ANTIBIOTIC FOUND AFTER CATTLE ARE SLAUGHTERED)

14. Veterinarians that know what they're doing and can give
you an estimated calving date.

(ESTMATED CALVING DATE? ONE DAY, SCIENCE WILL PRODUCE FOR EVERY EAR-TAGGED, COW AN ESTIMATED CARVING DATE)

15. A marketing program for my calf so he sells well and you
can afford to keep me another year.

(IN OTHER WORDS, RAISE THE PRICE OF VEAL SOLD IN RESTAURANTS. FACT IS, MANY NEWBORN CALVES GET A BULLET TO THE HEAD BECAUSE RAISING THEM FOR THEIR MEAT IS NOT ECONOMICAL. FARMERS RECEIVE $3-4 DOLLARS FOR A NEWBORN MALE AT AUCTION. THE
COST OF TRUCKING THAT NEWBORN TO THE AUCTION HOUSE IS $5)

16. Finally, if this is the year I don't measure up - market
me quickly and effectively. Not as a cripple or thin cow.

(THE AUTHOR REQUESTS TO BECOME EXTINCT ON THAT DAY IN WHICH PEOPLE NO LONGER DRINK MILK OR EAT MEAT FROM SKINNY AND CRIPPLED COWS, THIS MAN AND OTHERS LIKE HIM WILL BECOME DINOSAURS. WE WILL HAPPILY HONOR HIS REQUEST BY FINDING HIM A JOB IN THE SOY INDUSTRY)
