This can't be good...the economy is bad, no one can afford gas, to expensive to even eat, so the answer? Scientists have cloned milk producing cows to be the same size as a german shepard. Mini cows is what they call them. Now, for a few thousand dollars, you can have a mini cow in your backyard to save you from the high price of milk. It's just too weird...

It's not that bad... But still, the kind of animals people breed these days - mutations! Rabbits that glow green? Chickens with no feathers? WHat??!!

I can't imagine their health can be very good having been genetically manipulated to be so small but contain 70% of the "meat" of the larger breeds. Some are "naturally" that small, as if any cow could be natural these days, but most of the mini breeds have been recently bred that way.



I very much doubt that their health has been a major consideration :/
