"I think of Soltan as the Maureen Dowd of the blogosphere,
except that Maureen Dowd is kind of a wrecking ball of a writer,
and Soltan isn't. For the life of me, I can't figure out her

University Dairies
(I've Been Aching to Make This Pun.)

'Central Missouri dairy producers got together at the University of Missouri’s Foremost Dairy research and teaching center on Wednesday.

It was a chance for producers to see demonstrations of some cutting-edge technology: a fetal sexing demonstration using ultrasound technology and a computerized feed tracking system that takes the guesswork out of feeding.

Several kids joined their farming parents at the event; some even got to touch the fistulated cow.'
