Wouldn't have done shit. They got a bunch if rain then the blizzard came, the cows were soaked and hadn't yet put on their winter coat to insulate them from the cold. Phone Post

Turn those EBT card carriers loose with some meat cleavers





None of that meat can be used? Seems like such a waste.

It's hard to find a good number quickly, but if there were 35 million cows slaughtered in 2010, that 75k equates to 0.2% of the total. Not a lot. Phone Post 3.0
