    They use top quality horse for that don't they?

    Is that really early or really late or do you calve twice a year?

    We are dumb enough to calve twice a year! These guys a early though - might be drought related. We aren't supposed to start until the 20th but 15 have already calved. This one is the first to need a hand.

    Lol She's a heifer so she must be 5.5.

    Cows are on a grass free diet- 6.5 pke, 6.5 maize, 1 soy and 4 grass silage

    In Britain they found a shit load of the meat being sold as beef burger patties etc in super markets was actually horse meat
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Probably better than beef. Certainly leaner

    No nothing wrong except it was labelled as beef so that was the real issue.

    I think the main issue was that they had been fed antibiotics steroids etc not compatible with humans.
