why buy the cow

Recommended Posts

Is it hard to limit oneself to a single cow after playing in a herd of cows while young? Serious question. Seems like there would always be the potential to find another cow....

Nah. I went through plenty of cows in my day, especially when you consider the big, lazy steer that I am, but now I have eyes only for my sole cow on pasture.

Back my wild steer days I milked all sorts of cows, even a couple that didn't mind a cow of their own from time to time, but after seeing what was at the Cattle Auction of life I'm happy with the one that ended up in my pasture.

In fact, I think my only complaint is the amount of milk this one puts out. I mean heck, when I was 19 years old I could milk a cow on demand, 6, 7 even 8 times a day. I'm 38 and she's 36 so she's just now hitting her maximum milk production. Where my milking skills peaked when I was in my teens, she's just now hitting her milk production prime and quite frankly, I cant milk her often as she would like.

:D as a "steer" I bet you were popular....and safe from a cows viewpoint

Bet you ain't no farm boy

Happily married 24 years and can't imagine (or want to)

life without her. Quiting and in doing so failing in a big part of life is easy. Be honest with her and yourself. If "free milk" is the biggest reason you had for getting hitched then good luck cause long term you're going to need tons of it. But recognize it's a mistake and one you made. Stick with the relationship

you'll learn, grow, and find rewards like no single man can.

Marriage is like training a bird dog.  Trial and error, mistakes, successes, frustration, tears, laughter, patience - and love, lots of love.

If we all spent as much time working on making our marriages work as we do bringing our pups and dogs along, well...problems solved.

Carry on,

Ken

But in the end the dogs will listen, beg us to go hunting, and enjoy all the different guns we carry along.  All they ask for is a warm, dry bed and a bowl of food.

You speak the truth my friend.

My little bird dog pup has already forgiven a multitude of sins in me, whereas the cow I used to own kept a detailed diary of my every transgression, memorized it, and was ready to quick-draw a long recitation of the list if she felt the need.

Me, I'm either very forgiving or just have a bad memory because I never seemed able to remember a single bad thing that the cow had done when it would have been useful in an argument.

Trust Me, It's a genetic difference between cows and bulls (and steers, i guess). Most cows don't need to write it down they just remember it. My former cow and current cow can recite sins and transgressions that I didn't even know were sins and transgressions. I think it's because cows have very little else going on in their "brains" and therefore they can retain tremendous amounts of trivia and useless info. JMO

You might be on to something.

It's safe to assume that a cow and a steer have the same amount of brain capacity and memory storage available. Whereas a steers brain holds information like how to parallel park a car, which team is leading the AFC and how to drive a nail into a 2 x 4, the cows brain is not filled with such information. As a result, the cow can mentally retain the time that you accidentally said that she could lose a few pounds, the day that you compared her mother to a large mouth bass  and the one time in the bar whee you accidentally looked into some other guys pasture and stared a moment to long at his white tail with the huge rack.

Fellas, do I need to point out that a steer is a male that's  been castrated?

Or do ya'll already know that and I'm missing the point here?

Either way, carry on.  It's nasty down here today and I'm bored.  This is at least as entertaining as anything on the tube.

Uh, can't say I knew that.  

Then again, for a boy that grew up in the city in Connecticut then spent 16 years on the beach in Florida, I've never been around cows enough to be hip to their terminology.

How embarrassing.....  :blush:

Yep and when all that fails there is always the good old shock collar.
