    South Korea’s largest dairy producer has faced furious backlash after its latest advertisement featured a man secretly filming a group of women — who were then depicted as cows. In the ad for Seoul Milk, a man is seen walking through the countryside with a camera and hiding in a bush. The women are then startled and turn into cows when the interloper steps on a twig. The ad ends with the words “Clean water, organic feed, 100 percent pure Seoul Milk. Organic milk from an organic ranch in the pleasant nature of Cheongyang.”

    Democrats are going after our food source. Democrats snuck into the inferstructure bill these new climate change taxes on cows. The tax is $6,500 per dairy cow and $4,500 per beef cow. They are going after Agriculture in the name of Climate Change. Democrats are hoping Farmers will get rid of their cows.This will cause prices of meat and dairy to sky rocket. There will be a lot less available since most farmers cannot afford the high fines. People will starve to death in our country if this bill passes.We will have to import more meat and dairy from other...

    The next time an MLB manager makes a moove to the bullpen, he will anger a large group of PETA activists who think the term bullpen is insensitive to cows. In a statement issued Thursday by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the animal rights organization made it clear they find the term “bullpen” to be mocking towards the “misery of sensitive animals.”

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Like other ranchers across the country, Rusty Kemp for years grumbled about rock-bottom prices paid for the cattle he raised in central Nebraska, even as the cost of beef at grocery stores kept climbing. He and his neighbors blamed it on consolidation in the beef industry stretching back to the 1970s that resulted in four companies slaughtering over 80% of the nation’s cattle, giving the processors more power to set prices while ranchers struggled to make a living. Federal data show that for every dollar spent on food, the share that went to ranchers and...

    Source: Provided by Ed AshurstArizona used to have some of the best livestock laws in the nation. Now, the cattle ranching industry is being torn apart due to a dismantling of the successful laws and regulations that used to prevent cattle theft. Close to 3,000 head of cattle have been stolen from at least 32 people in the last few years. Thieves brazenly stole over 100 cows with calves from well-known attorney and judge Tom Kelly in Yavapai County. Cowboys who once made a good living raising and selling cattle are finding substantial portions of their herds decimated, and when...

Peck praised Abrams as a political pioneer in combating what he described as an American “machine” built on “genocide” and “slavery.”

    MADISON, WI - Sure, police K-9 units get a ton of (well-deserved) credit for their law enforcement prowess, but when it comes to ending a long car chase, not much is going to top a herd of cattle. The Barron Co. Sheriff’s Department thanked its “Bovine Unit” for stopping the pursuit, which lasted approximately 13 miles and stretched from Barron to Cumberland. Deputies were chasing a Chevrolet Cavalier, the department explained on its Facebook page, when the driver came upon a group of cows standing in front of him. “That little Cavalier that could during the chase ran out of...

    Cow burps are apparently the source of a lot of methane in our atmosphere. And there are a lot of cows on Earth. But a new research mission suggests a great way to reduce those emissions and significantly lower methane, which causes warming on our planet, and its straight from the sea. As reported by the Guardian, adding seaweed to beef cow diets can lower methane by as much as 82%. “We now have sound evidence that seaweed in cattle diet is effective at reducing greenhouse gases and that the efficacy does not diminish over time,” said agricultural scientist Ermias...

The animals - Morag, Flora and Hamish - were seen playing as they enjoyed the cold weather conditions at Almond Valley Heritage Centre this week. Footage captured by a member of staff at the Livingston facility saw three of the cows running around the field basking in the snow. They usually have to stay inside to avoid damaging the ground during wet winters, but the frozen ground this week has meant they could...

    According to Wired, a new bovine burp mask fitted with a catalytic converter catches methane expelled from cattle and converts it to CO2 and water. Methane is a more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2.~~~SNIP~~~There are 1.6 billion cattle on Earth, and their burps and farts are becoming a big problem. Cows expel methane, a colourless and odourless gas which is approximately 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide when it comes to warming the planet.Zelp, a UK-based company, has developed a potential solution in the form of a burp-catching face mask for cows, designed to reduce methane emissions from cattle...

    (FOX NEWS) -- In the increasingly hectic and stressful year of 2020, people are seeking calm wherever they can find it — from frolicking through the fields to adopting plants. But now there’s another natural way to restore your cortisol levels: cow-hugging. People in several parts of the world have begun to embrace the alleged wellness trend, which reportedly originated in the Netherlands, where it is known as “koe knuffelen.” According to the BBC, the practice of cuddling cows is supposed to reduce stress in humans by releasing the bonding hormone oxytocin.

    Burger King is staging an intervention with its cows. The chain has rebalanced the diet of some of the cows by adding lemon grass in a bid to limit bovines contributions to climate change. By tweaking their diet, Burger King said Tuesday that it believes it can reduce a cows’ daily methane emissions by about 33%. Cows emit methane as a by-product of their digestion, and that has become a potential public relations hurdle for major burger chains. Greenhouse gas emissions from the agriculture sector made up 9.9% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, according to the Environmental...

    To most people throughout human history, more people consuming meat would be an unquestionable good. Inexpensive and readily obtained sources of protein and calories ease the daily struggle to keep body and soul together. But this is 2020, and the media/left aren’t really like most humans. CBS News touted an insane idea that we needed to hit “peak meat” by 2030 to avoid an “ecological disaster." Now, Bloomberg News touts “peak beef” and its effects as a more salient set of talking points.

    GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCBD) – A deputy in Georgetown County was forced to use a taser on his own K-9 on Wednesday afternoon. According to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy responded to the scene of a reported burglary around 4:00 p.m. A cow near the scene distracted the dog which led to the dog biting the cow. To deescalate the situation, the deputy tased the dog. The cow was spooked and “struck the deputy and the property owner,” resulting in minor injuries, according to GCSO. The sheriff’s office said that the burglary call “proved to be unfounded.”

    Cows missing for two months were located on North Carolina’s Outer Banks after ‘mini tsunami’ carried wildlife away... They were presumed dead, but Cape Lookout National Seashore staff spotted one of the cows on another barrier island a month after the storm. That sighting was followed by two more, apparently grazing peaceably. A picture of the rangy-looking trio is now on Facebook. Cows are recognized as adept swimmers comfortable with covering a few hundred yards. But swimming miles of open water in a hurricane is outside their general range of expertise.

    Some day, hopefully long after I’ve shuffled off this mortal coil, I hope you’ll remember that I was the one who tried to warn you about this impending apocalypse. And now it’s at our doors. The socialist vegan hordes who are diligently (and successfully) working to get rid of all the cows and pigs so they can save the planet have a new target in their sights. Chickens. More specifically, they want to replace all of the eggs we eat with “eggs made from plants.” And they’re not joking. The work is already in progress. (Fox Business Network) Impossible Foods’...

    Is it better to have been a cow who, after spending a few years in a pasture or a feedlot, gets sent to a slaughterhouse — or to have never been a cow at all? Animal-rights activists and ethicists might want to start pondering that ethereal question now that a couple of California-based companies have developed plant-based meat substitutes that taste remarkably similar to ground beef. One of those firms, Beyond Meat, announced that it’s ready to offer a public stock offering. The El Segundo company’s products are available at thousands of U.S. grocery stores and restaurants.
