Well, the fluffy cow is pickin up steam around here... I know a family that grooms, including painting the cow to beautify it for show.. and this is in the 4H.. middle class 12 year old kids who cant afford to beautify, but raise their calf tirelessly dont stand a chance with the fluffy cows...

From what I saw, grooming didn't matter half as much as where the animals were bought, those breeders and judges stick together. It was that way when I did it and when my kids did it.

They pulled this scam for scrapie tags here, the tags are required by law. The breeders have special tags made with their name on them, not just a number, the judges know who the top breeders are.
I hate when they hold the animals back (they keep them at the same weight for an extended time) It's cruel and I would never want to eat one of those.

You know who would be a good cow fluffer? That troll Sam that Bex says doesn't exist. Yeah, he'd be good.

Old Sam and "your troll Sam" are two very different posters.

Utter (or udder) stupidity.

Now, for all the money and a chance to redeem yourself from that willful misinterpretation of my last post, which Sam did Bex claim never existed? Five seconds Wary...gray box idiot...obsessed with a Ferrerman....makes gay references...posts in a mirror...come on, Wary....you can do it....think about it....

Ignore the contradictory phrasing, they don't give milk -- they give 'lemonade' by the gallon.

We never had any fluffy cows on our farm when I was a kid.

My Dad used to say that cows give milk and bulls give cream. Then he'd act like it was a dirty joke and the girls shouldn't listen. I think he was right.
