Good for you, Cora. I get so tired of city people thinking that we farmers are just "Dumb, old farmers." I've even had someone tell me that to my face! I will say here what I told THAT woman. "There are no dumb farmers left. They have all been weeded out."
In case any city people protest, I challange you to come out here and keep up with us for one week--just one week! And if that seems like too much effort, I have a cow for sale too--of course you'll need to milk her twice a day for the next 10 months! Clara sure does like her oats but it needs to be organic. Then she MUST have organic pasture to graze on all day with pure water in between so that her milk is top-notch.......
Something to think about,
Mom

Well, can I buy just the basic cow, without the extra stomach and all that? Or is it a package deal? If so, I might just go buy a $500 4x4 pickup instead. :-)

Sorry Jonathan,
I can only sell the cow "As is"--which means the extra stomach, etc... has to stay in tact :) Guess you'll have to settle with a truck for now...
