The London Times reports that German shepherd-sized Dexter cattle, the "world’s most
efficient, cutest and tastiest cows”, are selling like hotcakes. Though diminutive, one Dexter will produce 16 pints of milk a day that can be drunk
unpasteurized, and it’ll keep your lawn mowed, too. And their calves are nifty as family pets… until they’re sent off to slaughter at the age of two.
See, I just don’t GET how kids can deal with that. But then I’m suburban-grown myself.
Btw, there’s a timely but thoroughly off-topic post on my blog called "How Joe Biden Treats the Help".Posted by Susan Harris on August 23, 2008 at 12:43 pm, in the category Eat This.
