#5 If you had 200 head before do you need 400 "minis" to get the same product output and whats the real cost (other than a bad back for the dairy farmer)? It seems like this is another "hobby farmer" pitch (goats, emu, llama, ect) suited to small operations or hobbyists. It will be interesting to see if these work out long run.

#9 Way up west (way up west),
there's a story told (there's a story told)
about a bunch of cowboys.

Tiny and bold. (tiny and bold)
Ridin' tall. (ridin' tall)
Tall in the saddle!
Herdin' cows the size of schnauzers
but they're cattle!


Well, that's for those of you who never experienced the joys of Jack-in-the-Box fast food restaurants. You have to see the TV commercial that goes with these lyrics to believe it.

#10 Better to raise grass-fed Bison and be done with it. They are better for you, cost less to raise and do far less damage to the grass land and waterways. Taste better too.

#11 For years, KFC has bitterly fought the rumor that they somehow grow pseudo-chickens in test tubes or other such nonsense:

Of course, PETA types love such horror stories. So why not put them at odds with the MMGW crowd? Say that scientists are genetically engineering legless cows that are "hormonally adjusted" to generate milk, then after a while are ground up for meat, all in the name of "fartless cows" that will not cause global warming?

#12 An old cowboy went ATVing out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a midget herd of half sized cows he saw
A-gamboling through the ragged sky and up the ozone depleted draw

Their brands were still wet paint and their hooves were made of recycled steel
Their horns were pink and shiny and their CO2 breath he could feel
A bolt of fear went through him as they gamboled through the sky
For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry

Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi yaaaaay
Eco Riders in the sky

Their faces lifted, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with wine
He's riding hard to catch that herd, but he ain't caught 'em yet
'Cause they've got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On ATVs snorting fire
As they ride on hear their cry

As the riders cruised on by him he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul from Obama a-riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Trying to catch the Midget herd, across these endless skies

Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi Yaaaaay

Eco Riders in the sky
Eco Riders in the sky
Eco Riders in the sky
