Green grass and cow anatomy

Seriously though, reading this sort of thing makes me appreciate New Zealand even more. I have been thinking about going vegetarian (and will blog more on that another day) but here in NZ it is easier to justify meat eating. Our farming practises are not great but at least we feed our cows with lots and lots of real green grass.
