Those Cows Are Sweeter Than You Think!

]At Mayfield’s United Livestock Commodities, owner Joseph Watson is tweaking the recipe for success.  “Just to be able to survive, we have to look for other sources of nutrition,” he said.

His 1,400 cattle are no longer feeding off corn. The prices, Watson says, are too high to keep corn in stock. So earlier this year, he began to buy second-hand candy.  “It has a higher ratio of fat than actually feeding straight corn,” Watson explained. “It’s hard to believe it will work but we’ve already seen the results of it now.”  Watson mixes the candy with an ethanol by-product and a mineral nutrient. He says the cows have not shown any health problems from eating the candy, and they are gaining weight as they should.   here

This give a whole new interpretation to chocolate milk, no?

It sounds like a smart idea to me – recycling, southern ingenuity and fattening cattle all in one swoop.  But I can hear PETA, the environmental loons and . . . .  Michelle Obama crying foul.  Or would that be ‘cow’?

    Having been born and raised on a dairy farm, I can attest to the sweet tooth of both bovines and equines.

    Cows like chocolate — and in particular Snickers bars. Peanuts seem to be favored.
    Horses go for more of the granola bar types — but anything sugary is fine with them too.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
