I always put a link to these ranchers.net pictures on my Facebook page. One lady commented, "Silly question: why would there be a skinny cow with all that good grass?"

Here is my reply: "She is not really skinny, but she is not one of our better cows. They can't all be top-of-the-line. :wink: I didn't really like portraying this particular cow, but did want to bring attention to the fact that cattle and birds live peacefully and compatibly in the same environment. There is a do-gooder "green" ignorant faction of people that would like nothing better than to see all cattle removed from the landscape. It is a liberal agenda that promotes such things as "meatless Mondays." Needless to say, if it wasn't for raising and marketing cattle, I would be out of a job and occupation. Ranchers with cattle do a great service in making ordinary grass become food for people."

And in turn the money made from the grass gets spent to keep someone else working. We are the roots of the economy.
