    Reading the title of this post, I did a double-, then triple-take because I couldn't believe might be true.


    Same here — I was shocked!

    If the latter what will be the quality of her milk or will she ever be milked?


    She wouldn't give enough milk to make here a good dairy cow, but she'd make an excellent calf-rearing mother in terms of the amount of milk she'd give.

    She's worth most as a mother of a 3/4 Wagyu calf — it wouldn't make sense to send her for beef.

    If the F1 calf is a male, it's a different story — he'd likely be castrated, to become a steer, then raised for beef.

    I hope that answers some questions.

    Happy to answer more.

  3. The friend mentioned above is one of my ex-partners — so I'm tough on him!

    The problem is that he drinks Dr. Pepper and complains loudly that he's getting fat and he doesn't have enough food.

    I point out what a horrible choice it is and what a terrible money manager he is — tough love!!! LOL

    Truth is, if SNAP didn't cover the Dr. Pepper, he'd pay for it with his SSI funds.

  4. Another way I save on SNAP is to almost never buy packaged drinks of any type.

    I drink water, coffee, and tea, 99.9% of the time.

    I installed a six-stage reverse osmosis water filtration system with a permeate pump (conserves water) in 2010 when I bought this place.

    It's been an excellent investment — $200 — I've recouped that MANY times.

    The water it produces is just like premium spring water.

    The filtered water goes to the cats too! 😺


    A friend drinks mostly Dr. Pepper — one+ 2 liter bottle(s) every day.

    One of the reasons why his SNAP runs-out long before the end of the month!

  5. Oats were our go-to for decades.

    Now I make tender and creamy risotto porridge.

    With whatever favorite accompaniments.


    ETA: It's real good dressed like rice pudding.
