"How Long Would Heather Live If Not Turned Into Meatballs?"I think I would pass on Heather meatballs. She is a nice girl (bird). Besides it is illegal.
Cannibalization of Heather the girl (chick, bird, etc) I can draw a diagram and flow chart if needed.
Heather...as she is today ![attachment=587]
if you've herd too much, don't have a cow! Besides, Paul started it

“Does the ‘quality’ of cow and bull beef from dairy cattle really matter since cows and bulls are made into ground beef?” The answer is simple – YES! Quality matters because not all cow beef is manufactured into ground beef. Yes, approximately 56% of a cow or bull carcass is utilized as trimmings and some of those trimmings will be used to produce ground beef. However, 44 % of each cow and bull carcass, according to the 1999 National Market Cow and Bull Beef Quality Audit (NMCBBQA-1999; Roeber et al., 2000a), will be utilized as whole muscle cuts and/or 100% visual lean product to provide steaks and roasts.Roeber DL.

We have taken in a few because I have a really soft heart, but it takes lots more then a human mama to help them. We have failed in each attempt even with the vets intervention to try and save the calves.. They just needed more time with mom... One calf just seemed to thrive then would suddenly lapse back and be come weak.. we lost them all by about 3 weeks one at almost six, but to a larger predator we suspected a mountain lion cause he drug the little guy off and all we found were remnants... it was way sad! Yes I have a couple acres for animals but they really need a lot more space... Those calves are so adorable!..
