Cows eating candy during the drought:
'via Blog this'
(I thought this story was fake!)
This is not news. My husband used to build silos and we toured a working farm in Wisconsin back in 1980 where the farmer literally had tons of candy brought in on dump trucks to feed his beef cattle. He said he could get them from calves to market weight in as little as 3 months on a sugar based diet...yum...no one ever said. I suppose though that it is not any worse than (genetically modified franken) corn, which is NOT their natural food source. One of the many reasons I do not eat beef.
(And we wonder why America is so fat.)
