Names: Mean & Meaner or Mean & Nasty or Bad and Badder.
If you can think of more appropriate names for these two beasts of the barnyard, lets hear them.
Ages: unknown, but I guess 5 or 6
Occupations: Barnyard Bullies. Every school has one.
We got 2 in this barnyard. God help us.
These 2 HUGE angus cows are the junk yard dogs of the hay rack.
They never leave it.
They push cows and calves away from the hay.
They never go out to the field to chew cud or take a walk.
Neither of them had a calf this year and neither are bred. Both are open.
One of them continues to challenge me while I am unwrapping the plastic netting off the hay rolls after I drop them into the hayrack, every day.
The other one charges me as I top off the water tanks.
If anything happens to me while I am doing chores, and my cold lifeless body is found--its correct to assume that these 2 cows "did it."
Both are hugely obese and eat their weight in hay every week. $$$
When I first arrived here, I could not believe the rolls of fat on these 2 cows.
Look at this brisket!!!! All I can think of is corned beef and cabbage each and every time I see this cow. Not kidding.
One is the size of my truck and the other is just a little less huge.
This is the biggest, baddest cow in the entire State of Vermont
This is the second biggest and baddest cow in the state.
Just let me state for the record that these cows are NOT mine.
I do not know why the farmer who owns this farm continues to shell out $ to keep these 2 troublesome cows.
I cull for 3 reasons, following the "O" rule: Old, Ornery or Open.
Open cows get fat and can't get bred.
If they do eventually get bred then they have difficulties calving.
Vet bills follow.
These bad cows really push the other cows around and I constantly worry that they may cause a stillborn birth or late term abortion from my pregnant cows.
