The news out of the
University of Wisconsin
River Falls is all about
the Oreo Cows.

The Hudson Star-Observer
dutifully interviews Professor
Gary Onan (with
whom you can study Swine
Production) on the grass
versus cornfed experiment
he’s conducting with them,
but you and I know that
these cows are really
about just being incredibly
beautiful.

Who cares whether
they develop high
marbling in the muscle.
Who cares whether
they like feed more
than grass. These
cows exist to be
adored.

    Al Sharpton has condemned these cows.

  5. Shane Says:

    Jeez, how can you not comment on the fact that the guy’s name is Onan? Pikers.

    But at least we can all claim to make no connection between his name and cows, and I suppose that is a good thing.

  6. Margaret Soltan Says:

    I know, I know, Shane. It took all my self-control not to comment on the fact that the guy’s name is Onan.

    Thank you for that link, Liz. I’m beginning to understand the details of these breeds, and have begun fantasizing about going here and volunteering:
